Parade – ‘Light Me Up’
Released: Free download
Label: Well that's a long story
As we discussed a couple of weeks ago, Parade are back and they're not rubbish.
While it's important that we acknowledge what has come before and what is happening now, we don't think the whole 'they used to be ropey and now they are great' angle should become the band's 'thing'. It's hardly 'Professor Green was stabbed in the neck you know' or 'hey did you know Conor Maynard uploaded a video to YouTube once' in the Things That Will Forever Be Written About Pop Artists stakes.
Anyway the point is that today marks Day Zero for the rebooted Parade, and they're kicking it all off quite spectacularly with a free download of this fantastic tune.
(Yes that's right readers - a free download that isn't some old shit that wasn't even good enough to be an iTunes bonus track. Whatever next?)
