Following on from their 2018 EP “The Peculiar Aftermath”, Melbourne-based pioneers of experimentally sweet Folk Pop Parkville have treated fans to yet another harmoniously rendered work of alchemy with their latest single “Rooks (Radio Edit)”.
Their unique blend of Folk incorporates an eclectic instrumental arrangement with violin and cello accentuating the acoustic soundscape. While the Pop sensibility to the track comes from the polished production and mesmeric vocals which floods Rooks with commercial potential. Expect unpredictable progressions from Salsa arrangements to concordant minimalism with plenty of spatial effect in the outro.
Despite the light tonality of Rooks, it still resonates as an incandescent soundscape thanks to the depth of the lyrics and the undiluted emotion which has been poured into the track.
You can check out Parkville’s latest single Rooks for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud from February 16th.
