Wow, really lovely 7″ has just come into my life via Akira Records and Serve & Volley Records. Beautiful stuff from mysterious group Still Parade. ‘Actors’ performs the admirable feat of combining sublime a vocal performance – on the level of transcendence as ‘If Only I Could Remember My Name’ era David Crosby & a hint of Bon Iver – with subtle electronic manipulation that roots Still Parade firmly in the 21st century. Hints of echo, backwards guitar and synth pads create a wonderful bed of sound which snag the heart and allow the arrangement to head for the heavens. Here’s both sides for you to dig.
