It's time for a (Scarlett) parade!
Scarlett Parade are releasing their debut EP, Wildwoods, today and we're streaming it exclusively!
Scarlett Parade's music combines powerful melodies with introspective lyrics that are inspired by authors and poets such as Tolkien, W.B. Yeats and Edgar Allen Poe. So there is a darkness and an artisticness to their music and their words. [I mean, just look at that cover!—Ed.]
Sonically, the band crafts contemplative, smart indie alt rock that leaves a mark with its heartfelt beauty.
Our fave is "White River," which takes inspo from Game of Thrones.
"Wildwoods is a set of four songs that we'd be demoing back in the latter part of 2013 on an old laptop, digitally adding layer upon layer in order to create a rich almost wall of sound production. The songs really took form once we'd begun recording in the famous Rockfield Studios with our producer Steve Orchard and it was particularly incredible the first time we heard a real string section track the parts we'd been building up back at home. With Wildwoods being our first release the idea is to offer a glimpse into who 'Scarlett Parade' are and incorporate, as much as possible with four songs, all the colours in our palette," the band told us.

With all of that in mind, get "Wild."
