Parachute Words’ Latest Release Is A Catchy Call To Action About Global Warming
Parachute Words have dropped a catchy new tune that’s deep with meaning. Don’t be fooled by the supposed sunny, summery theme - it’s actually a sarcastic comment on the current state of the environment and the grave reality of global warming. The accompanying music video is sharply candid, featuring Martino up-close to the camera, with beautiful colour grading and a lo-fi feel.
Parachute Words is the moniker of Martino Gasparrini, whose musical endeavours started on a laptop, like so many musicians of his generation. He is now joined by a band - this London live iteration of Parachute Words has been playing live for the last three years, with Ollie Cox on bass, Tony Lea on guitar, George Barker on drums and Martino on vocals and guitar. Following the likes of Frankie Cosmos, Alex G and Car Seat Headrest, Martino began uploading albums on Bandcamp. Starting out with raw lo-fi home recordings, the band's albums have improved with every release, leaving a trail of guitar indie rock albums in their wake.
‘Sunshine!!’ is unique, kooky, and ever-so indie. It will no doubt leave a lasting impact on any listener, as the catchy melodies and instrumentation, complete with Foster The People/MGMT-style vocals will have you warned - ‘The sun is shining always brighter’, and it’s time to wake up.
‘Sunshine!!’ was released on 25th September.
