Hailing from Essex, Morning Parade are currently one of the most hotly tipped bands for 2011. Look on the internet and you will see that every reputable music and style site across the board including Gigwise, Q The Music, Clash, i-D, Vogue.it and ASOS are tipping this young five-piece for big things next year.
Their pulsating synths, energetic guitars and candid lyrics fuse to create a supercharged sound. They release their debut single ‘Under The Stars’ this week, which has been receiving early support across Radio 1, XFM, 6 Music, Absolute and Q music; with Zane Lowe championing the band on his website. The band have been recording their debut album at the legendary 13 Studios owned by Damon Albarn with longtime Blur collaborator, Jason Cox.
Morning Parade now set off on their own headline tour having played early supports with the likes of Florence and The Machine and Glasvegas and are already developing a ferocious live reputation.
What do you get when you fuse anthemic indie rock with contemporary, electronic, dance elements? The answer is one of the most exciting sounds of 2011. i.D Online
These Essex natives have a well polished sound suited to stadia and an already growing fan base threatening to fill them in future. Q The Music
We know that there are more huge euphoric anthems up their sleeves for next year too, which makes them the smart British rock tip for those preview lists for 2011. Record Of The Day
