Still Parade ~ Actors!

Still Parade Actors Artwork!

I don’t know who STILL PARADE is or where they come from but I do know I absolutely love their song “Actors”.  It’s a love that is just as mysterious as the band itself.  “Actors” is more than simply a gorgeous song but it’s hard to explain why.  There is something oddly beautiful about the steady guitar strumming that repetitively drives the track and it somehow stays on the right side of keeping my attention the whole time.  The vocals are hauntingly soothing all the way to my bones even though I can hear different words each and every time I listen to them.  Yet this pushes me to want to listen to the song all over again. I feel happy and relaxed at times and then sad and confused at other moments for no real reason at all.  But I am emotionally invested each time.  Emotionally all in.  Amidst the intoxicating layers of invigorating electronic and ethereal sounds I won’t take my ears away from.  Maybe this is exactly what STILL PARADE is going for.  Letting their music speak for itself.  Portraying any character or sound I want to hear.  All I know for sure is that “Actors” is more than simply a gorgeous song.  It just is!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
