The Royal Parks (named after a park in the north of Melbourne), have just released their debut record Suburb Home and today’s track of the day is the gorgeous single from that album ‘In The Wrong’.
‘In The Wrong’ showcases the group’s intricate vocal harmonies, as well as their ability to create a sonic vastness. This aesthetic appropriately underpins the themes of nostalgia, retrospect and regret.
Suburb Home is the result of the group’s collaboration with indie-folk producer Noah Georgeson (Joanna Newsome, Devendra Banhart, Robin Pecknold.) Noah is a legendary producer who actually offered to fly to Melbourne to produce and mix Suburb Home. Georgeson’s sonic fingerprint is highlighted within The Royal Parks’ sound, and the influences of groups like Fleetwood Mac, Fleet Foxes, and Paul Kelly are intertwined into the bands’ unique indie-folk aesthetic.
Suburb Home will be launched at the Bella Union on April 29. The album is available now, and you can check out the video for the titular track ‘Suburb Home’ below.
