The King’s Parade Releases New Single

Supplied By Artist

We saw this engaging outfit last year down at the Walled Garden Festival down in deepest Kent and heard traces of Crowded House, Hall & Oates and The Silver Seas but that kind of melodic drive used in their own original material. A new single is now available…

The King’s Parade have released their brand new single ‘Woman’. The song sees the highly acclaimed London quartet addressing the issues of gender imbalance which are witnessed on a daily basis in society.

Frontman Olly Corpe explains, “I see it every day and it never changes. It seems that it’s ingrained and that there’s just this biological barrier that we men can’t or won’t break down. The idea behind the chorus was to try and make the phrase “Like a Woman” celebratory and empowering, rather than derogatory or belittling. It conveys the strength and determination/force of a woman breaking through.

The opening verse depicts a magazine showing a model portraying how she is ‘meant to look’, something we’re all familiar with. The second verse focuses on the biological inequality, which all women have to face; time seems to be against them on almost every level. All of us in the band thought that it was important to voice how we feel and express our respect and admiration for women everywhere. Hopefully it will ring true for everybody who hears it.”

Woman’ follows the release of the Haze EP last year. Its release saw them appear at summer festivals including Secret Garden Party, Walled Garden Music Festival and Cornbury Festival while they played sold out headline shows across the UK and Europe.

Most recently The King’s Parade have been nominated for three awards at the Unsigned Music Awards 2018 including Best Record, Best Produced Record and Best Jazz / Blues Act. The King’s Parade breathe fresh life into UK guitar bands. They have developed an exciting new blueprint, which is seeing a loyal and expectant fanbase grow by the day. They continue to cement their status as one of the most naturally talented and hardworking acts coming from the UK today.
