The Addictive Underground Indie Rock Of Parker Longbough
The new single premiere from Parker Longbough gives off a classic radio alt pop feel that touches on bands like The Cure and The Smiths as it nails the style of the era.
"The Youngster" is a fun and bright indie rock track with the 90's alternative undertone complete with keys that give us smooth hooks, and a certain energy that sticks with you.
This single gives that high school feeling or at least it does for me as this track hits all the marks of that time in alternative pop nearly perfectly.
You can hear the heart in this track clearly and how it gives a youthful life in it's sound.
There are elements of old school Nada Surf and the musical melodies get lodged in your head quickly as the fuzz tone guitar lines and bells grab hold of you.
Longbough has been dropping music on Spotify since 2006 and songs range in genre variety at times, some with a grittier sound, some with mre punk vibes, but so much pop it's infectious.
With a catalog of killer pop tunes, it's hard to know where to start but we suggest you start with "The Youngster"and work your way back. One thing is for sure, if you like this single, you're bound to fall in love with Longbough's sound even as you go farther back.
The artist never loses his pop sensibility even for a second and it's impressive to hear how his sound has evolved over the past decade at least.
There is a great freedom in his songwriting that becomes addictive.
