Acclaimed London quartet The King’s Parade have today (15th March) released their new single ‘Haze’.
The song leads with a rich walking bass riff and warm blues guitar before frontman Olly Corpe breaks into an effortlessly smooth croon, which swoons among the themes of love, propelled by a powerful gospel backing vocal. The result bridges between classic blues and carefully crafted pop, similar to the likes of Alabama Shakes, The Black Keys and Leon Bridges.
Regarding the single The King’s Parade say, “’Haze’ describes the feeling of helplessness when you fall hard for someone. You’re drawn in and you indulge yourself in the moment. You surrender to that feeling and see where it takes you.”
‘Haze’ is the first taste of new music following the release of the band’s debut EP Vagabond, which clocked up praise from the likes of Clash, Notion, EARMILK and many more.
Vagabond built the band a fervent fanbase, which has seen them sell out headline shows at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, Oslo and a residency at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s. They’ve also become a strong live draw in Germany, selling out headline shows across the country.
The King’s Parade are set to expand their reach even wider with the release of ‘Haze’ and have more exciting announcements due to follow shortly.
“The group are a sought after creative force” – Clash
“The King’s Parade are no ordinary band” – EARMILK
“The King’s Parade mixes memories of heartbreak and the aches that strum about it in the aftermath” – Impose
