Sydney power-pop band Love Parade have been compared to Tom
Petty, Elvis Costello, early Bowie, The Sunnyboys, The Modern Lovers and a number of other bands that bore no impact whatsoever on the formation of the band’s sound.
Working with an enviable team on their debut record “King Me” including producer Robert F. Cranny (Sarah Blasko), Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) and Jay Whalley (Frenzal Rhomb), among others–it features lead single Like Lovers Do, which received lashings of airplay across Triple J and community radio, and Surfin’ NSW which boasted a video-clip which was played on RAGE for exactly half of summer (possibly the dumbest thing to air on Australian television since The Wog Boy).
“King Me” follows the EP “A Strawberry Situation”, which was released through seminal label Half A Cow to rave reviews (and one bad one) in late 2010. They think they sound like Teenage Fanclub or The Replacements, although they sound closer to Tinted Windows. They have more songs than they will ever release, and hearts the size of Phar Lap’s.
