The National Parks
All the way from Provo in the sunny state of Utah, The National Parks prepare for their latest album release with a run of teasing singles. Sunshine is the recently released edition to keep the ball in the air and it’s already got its sights on the long term. A summertime folk-rock masterpiece, the warming and bright composition fits snugly on the album as a stand-out number. The 8th Wonder LP album coincides with an 8th Wonder tour which will see the band strut their stuff in front of happy crowds in several key locations. After an intimate and family orientated Zoom meeting at the previous new year, the band decided to go forth with all the passion and drive they have without the need to impress anybody but themselves. That’s how you get truly personal art and it’s resulted in this fantastic album due on March 3rd. In the meantime, let’s enjoy the Sunshine.
It begins with a wave of synthesiser and an enchanting female vocal. Guitars rise from the middle with chugging chord progressions. A punky melody begins with male vocals, a melodic swing through evolving composition ensues as the drums bash a funky drive that froths in bubbling effervescence. Smooth transitions bring the chorus with male and female harmonies on the vocals as the band elevate the journey with extra layers of tune. A continual push carries the song forward as the catchy and uplifting melodies hit the bars and bring them to life.
