Parades Studio Dark

Agreement Covers “In The Moment” EP For Global Publishing & Sync

Nova Artist Services today announce a global publishing deal with the band, The Parades. Hailing from Reading, UK, the three piece consists of Dan Bartlett (Guitar/ Vocals), Andy Burge (Bass) and Callum Walton (Drums).

Dan says, “Since the start of 2014, we wanted our first offering as a band to reflect what we’re all about sonically and aesthetically. For us, we feel that the only way anyone can properly engage with, and understand the band, is to join us at a show. To try and put all of that emotion, energy, atmosphere and feeling into a 3 track EP was quite a daunting task!

But we’d been playing these songs live for a few months in the build-up to the recording and campaign, and knew that if any tracks were up to the job of doing just that, these were the ones. We hid ourselves away for about three months and really tried to get the best out of them – writing, recording, producing and mixing ourselves. Now it’s done, we’re proud to have ‘In The Moment’ as the first chapter. We feel that the mix of tracks on this EP highlights the high-energy, melodic funk sound that reflects our band. We can’t wait for the next one”.

The Parades have played over 100 gigs in 2014 building up a strong following. This includes gigs booked by Nova Music; in-stores for retailer Jack Wills and an appearance at the Somersault Festival. Their live set is now a powerful combination of superb melodies and a tight funk rhythms that is building a fan-base around the country.

2014 will be rounded off with a “BBC Introducing” headline slot on December 22nd at the Bowery District in Reading. Free Entry.

In The Moment – Lyrics

(Dan Bartlett / Andy Burge / Callum Walton)

 

Caught in the moment

We know that it’s never too late

Short words are spoken

Now I’m thinking, why did I wait?

 

Yeah you make me see why I’m living, I don’t wanna get out

And through my eyes i see your vision I’m not part of the crowd

 

Finding that were lost

Losing all control in my head

I’m not sitting around just thinking what its going to be

I’ll keep going instead

 

Yeah you make me see why I’m living, I don’t wanna get out

And through my eyes I see your vision I’m not part of the crowd

It was getting me down, I was out of my place, but I’m finally feeling its going my way

Yeah you make me see why I’m living, I don’t wanna get out

 

Finding that were lost

Losing all control in my head

I’m not sitting around just thinking what its going to be

I’ll keep going instead

 

Yeah you make me see why I’m living, I don’t wanna get out

And through my eyes I see your vision I’m not part of the crowd

It was getting me down, I was out of my place, but I’m finally feeling its going my way

Yeah you make me see why I’m living, I don’t wanna get out
