TESS PARKS Shared 3rd Piece From Her New LP – Hear Rollicksome Ripsnorter ‘DO YOU PRAY?’ Here

Daily electricity to load your batteries

16 April 2022

Artist: TESS PARKS
Who: Toronto born, London based singer-songwriter
Active: Since 2013. One solo album and two collaborative
ones with Anton Newcombe, the mastermind of psych squad
The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

New album: ‘AND THOSE WHO WERE SEEN DANCING’

The title refers to a quote by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche:
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by
those who could not hear the music.”

Out: 22 April 2022 via Fuzz Records

New single: DO YOU PRAY?

Tess Parks: “My friend Annie just asked me one day out of the blue, “Do you pray?”,
and I thought, “Wow, yes I love that and yes I do, every day.” The song is a mix of two traditionals: “My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean” and “When The Saints Go Marching In.”

This is the 3rd shared piece from the upcoming album. A rollicksome ripsnorter
pushed by a one-note, boogie-woogie piano touch (played by Parks‘ father on her grandfather’s piano – wow, that’s cool) that I can’t get out of my head anymore after
a couple of spins. I can’t get her husky, sensual voice out of my mind either, but that’s already been for several years now.

Let’s all pray together…

All three shared singles together here on Spotify…

Puzzling Songstress TESS PARKS Releases New Album ‘AND THOSE WHO WERE SEEN DANCING’

10 March 2022

Artist: TESS PARKS
Who: Toronto born, London based singer-songwriter
Active: Since 2013. One solo album and two collaborative
ones with Anton Newcombe, the mastermind of psych squad
The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

New album: ‘AND THOSE WHO WERE SEEN DANCING’

The title refers to a quote by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche:
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by
those who could not hear the music.”

Out: 22 April 2022 via Fuzz Records

Tess Parks: “In my mind, this album is like hopscotch. These songs were pieced together over time in London, Toronto and Los Angeles with friends and family between August 2019 and March 2021. So many other versions of these songs exist. The recording and final completion of this album took over two years and wow – the lesson I have learned the most is that words are spells. If I didn’t know it before, I know it now for sure. I only want to put good out into the universe.”

Singles/clips: Brexit At Tiffany’s / Happy Birthday Forever

– BREXIT AT TIFFANY’S –

Ongoing puzzling electro groove.
Broken spoken word vocals…

– HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOREVER –

Think Marianne Faithfull and Mazzy Star‘s Hope Sandoval.
Magnetic reverie/jam with another sensualistic, vocal performance …
