The Take Off and Landing of Everything

Holiday Parade’s latest independent release is a nice mix of where the band is at today and where they’ve been. The band’s melodic style is a nice blend of piano driven rock and modern punk. Songs like “Where Did I Go” and “Nothing Personal” showcase the band’s unique hybrid sound. As side from the stellar lead off track “Getaway,” the band shows great diversity on the melodic infused “Forever” and the ballad “Look Out Below (This Love). While many critics will write this band off as another Plain White T’s sound alike, dig a little deeper and you’ll find a multidimensional band capable of appealing to multiple genres, and possibly appealing enough to garner major label attention.
