SCARLETT PARADE: The Debut Album

Scarlett Parade is a London-based duo hailing from the Isle of Man, the tiny island located in the Irish Sea between Liverpool and Belfast. Formed in early 2011, members Adam Jones and Geoffrey Tinkler, both 24, have a strong songwriting partnership that is designed to showcase their strengths, not only as songwriters, but multi-instrumentalists also.

Friends for many years, Adam and Geoff were classmates throughout high school and performed in various bands throughout this time. In the years following high school, Geoff attended university studying music whilst Adam toured in the blues-rock band Back Door Slam, playing all over North America as headliners, as well as opening for Kid Rock, Gov’t Mule, George Thorogood and Lynyrd Skynyrd among many others.

From the second you hear the opening piano bars of the track “I Don’t Need Your Love,” you know that this debut Scarlett Parade album is going to be something totally different. And when the song breaks into it’s full throated soulful cry, you know you are not wrong, by a long way.

Not often enough does an album really draw you in nowadays. This one is truly a grandiose statement combining the traditionally emotional celtic vocal sounds, made world-famous by the likes of  U2, Simple Minds, The Proclaimers and The Waterboys, with the profound rock foundation of Led Zeppelin, Nirvana and Pearl Jam. All Played out, mainly using piano driven riffs and hooks, solely led by the haunting voice of Geoffrey Tinkler. Unique, to say the least.

The lyrics are intelligent, the vocals expressive, and the sound original, often stripped to the bare essentials and never overproduced. Letting the music breathe comfortably.

Songs like “March Of The Fallen” strongly demonstrate Scarlett Parade’s deepest love and passion for the art they produce and the messages they transmit. What comes across first and foremost throughout the music, is the honest emotion and atmosphere, ever-present in their interpretations. The sound is organic and almost tangible, overtly because the live-sounding mix on the album seems to place the listener in the same room as the band performing live.

“The Time Ain’t Coming Around” showcases the duo’s ability to work their way around groovy timeworn rhythms and piano hooks, without ever loosing that modernistic, state-of-the-art roots appeal. This is partly due to Geoffrey Tinkler’s passionate, but easy off-the-cuff singing, while he and Adam Jones just let the grooves flow and grow in a rather understated way, rather than explicitly driving it’s tempo to the limit.

“Billie” prepares to warm-up the rock engines with some earnest electric six-string riffs, leading Scarlett Parade into the album’s outright rock opus, “Black As The Sun.”  The track has strong psychedelic overtones and sounds as if it could easily have come off classic, late 60’s albums by Cream or The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Once again, on this closing track, this unusual rock duo manage to engrave a personal contemporary feel to the song, maintaining their appealing, state-of-the-art, roots sound.

Our advice is to get this debut album by Scarlett Parade, relax on a sofa or on an isolated beach somewhere in the world and listen, it will feed your soul and warm your spirit.
