The Parades - Breathe
Reading based trio The Parades first came to our attention recently when their latest single "Breathe" received airplay on the wonderful New Voices show on BBC Radio Ulster on Tuesday evening. Despite already seeming to have picked up a decent following already, there doesn't seem to be an awful lot of information about them floating around the interwebs.
Of the tidbits that we can find about them, the most intriguing is that they share a booking agent with several acts who have been associated with both The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, and supported an ex-BGT act, Loveable Rogues, on their tour last year. We don't know whether this means that a Mr Cowell has a hand in this band, but if this currently unsigned band does end up inking a deal with Syco in the future, there may be a reason for that.
All this however shouldn't detract from their music, and if "Breathe" is anything to go by, they've got some great tunes in them. The alternate-rock song calls to mind the intense energy that has hallmarked some of Foals' most recent hits.
