In 2007, five musicians from Harlow, Essex formed Morning Parade, an alternative rock band singing about the pressures of young people inspired by “what’s real and what’s around us.” Steve Sparrow (vocals/guitar), Chad Thomas (guitar), Ben Giddings (keyboards), Phil Titus (bass) and Andy Hayes (drums) write music for the new generation of young people who are looking to establish themselves and their future. As Steve notes: “There’s a massive pressure on young people now. Most don’t know what they want to do until their mid twenties. It leaves people demoralized and isolated. Children are taught Maths and English at school but not how to apply themselves to a career path, a calling, or an ambition.” For many young people, Steve speaks the truth.
All the way from the UK, Morning Parade is showing their love for fellow Brits like Bloc Party and The Macabees in their Top 10 tracks of 2012!
