UK via Australia pop chantreusse PARKER returns with her first offering of 2018, an ethereal alt-pop earworm entitled ‘High’. Pairing up once again with Rupert Lyddon (Gabriel Bruce, Grand National), the track is a gorgeous display of PARKER at her finest; breathy and broody pop vocals, haunting melodies, and deeply personal lyrics that mix together to create another pop gem.
When discussing inspiration for the track, PARKER says:
“I wrote High a few years ago, when I’d first moved to London and recorded it with Rupert (Lyddon) in his studio. The song came out of a general teen angst phase, I was going out a lot and having my ‘is this all there is’ moment. I’m fascinated by people’s need for escapism (including my own) and I guess the song is about the juxtaposition of being young and having all these big dreams but then being scared, so I’d just run away from them instead. “
The new single follows 2017’s ‘Runs & Rides’, and ‘Doubles’, her breakout track has already racked up 250K streams on Spotify and landed her a synch with MTV’s Catfish. Hailed by Breaking More Waves as ‘midnight menacing pop music‘ and HillyDilly adding ‘expect a bright future for her‘, the 21 year old is one to keep your eyes on for 2018.
Born in Doncaster, brought up in Australia, and now living in Hackney, frontwoman Bryony Parker has had anything but a conventional life. The 21-year-old musician said her goodbyes to her family in Australia and bought a one way ticket to England to focus on her music career and she hasn’t looked back since.
Thank you so much, Judy!
