Today, UK via Australia moody pop chanteuse E.PARKER (f.k.a. PARKER) releases her highly anticipated new single ‘Godspeed‘. Teaming up with producer Gethin Pearson (ALMA, Kele Okereke) the single sees E.PARKER 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. Premiering now on The Line Of Best Fit, listen to ‘Godspeed‘ HERE.
When discussing the inspiration for ‘Godspeed’, E.PARKER says, “I left Australia when I was 18, to make music in London. I was very lost at the time, bought a one way ticket and didn’t go back home for almost 4 years. I wrote ‘Godspeed’ recently, as a letter to that version of myself, because I’m proud of that girl and the journey she’s had. I hope that the track can resonate with anyone else who is on the edge and about to take a chance, because I’ve come to learn that it’s always worth it.”
The single precedes the release of her debut EP ‘The Life Illusion‘, released earlier this year which included the single ‘High‘ which 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 last year writing and recording new material and now with four incredible songs under her 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.
“Eschewing much of the rippling electronica of previous efforts, ‘Godspeed’ is no less moody thanks to E.PARKER’s hushed tones, taking blood from the vein of storytelling raconteur Lana Del Rey with lyrics of undulated decadence and masochistic obsession.” – The Line Of Best Fit
