FRESH: ‘Girl’ – E.Parker

E.Parker unveils her stunning new single “Girl”.

Today, UK via Australia moody pop chanteuse E.PARKER (f.k.a. PARKER) unveils her stunning new single “Girl”. Teaming up once again with producer Gethin Pearson (ALMA, Kele Okereke) the single sees E.PARKER continue to take her sultry pop sound to new heights, pairing her etherial and broody vocals with haunting melodies taking blood from the vein of storytelling raconteur Lana Del Rey with lyrics of undulated decadence and masochistic obsession.

When discussing the inspiration for “Girl”, E.PARKER explains “I wrote this track mostly about a girl I was really fascinated by and I think it’s the first time I’ve written lyrics that focus more on my inner fantasy world than reality. Although for me, I hope the larger message of the track that people take away is the Girl, you have so much time ahead of you, so what are you going to do?’…because you can do anything.”

The single precedes the release of her single “Godspeed”, released in late 2018 and her debut EP “The Life Illusion”, which included the single “High” that landed a coveted spot on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist and “Thighs”, her breakout track that has already racked up over 250K streams and landed her a synch on MTV’s Catfish. Hailed by Breaking More Waves as “midnight menacing electronic pop music” with HillyDilly adding “expect a bright future for her”, the 21-year-old musician songstress is one to keep your eyes on for 2019.

Born in Doncaster, brought up in Australia, and now living in Hackney, E.PARKER has had anything but a conventional life. Saying her goodbyes to her family in Australia and buying a one way ticket to England to focus on her music career, she hasn’t looked back since. Spending much of 2018 writing and recording new material and now with an EP and more incredible new songs under belt, E.PARKER remains one of the most exciting new artists to emerge in recent years, ready to show the world what this Aussie is made of.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
