Another week, another awesome melody from BRIAN E. KING. Just when the initial love affair with his latest pop masterpiece project PARKS started to fade (just a touch), he got back into our collective headspaces with "Marianne," a track he co-wrote with CORIN ASHLEY and which appears on the former Pill's fantastic new record, New Lion Terrances.
Now, just in time for Parks' gig at the Sinclair in Harvard Square this Friday opening for MILO GREENE, the band today released a second single, "Modern Fiction," which Boston Accents premiered a few weeks ago when King was a guest in the WFNX studio for our Class of 2013 spectacular.
Here's what we wrote on Parks in last month's featured spotlight:
"After disbanding his longtime indie-pop band Oranjuly, Brian E. King quickly resurfaced late last year with Parks, taking his keen songwriting craftsmanship and penchant for jangle-pop into a more structured, sun-salted, and faster-paced direction. The result was fancy-footed "Sweater Weather," and the reaction was immediate. "I've personally gone through hell in the past two years," King says, "so it'll be exciting to share what I've put all of my energy (and really, my well-being) into." His band includes members of Spirit Kid and the Motion Sick, and you can certainly hear it within this well-heeled union of sugary pop magic."
