The King’s Parade have released their brand new EP Mad. To mark the release the critically acclaimed London four-piece have revealed the video for their latest single ‘Mistakes’.
The ‘Mistakes’ video follows the touching story of a man on a deserted beach; while metal detecting he uncovers various items that trigger fantasy fuelled visions of a past love.
Regarding the video frontman Olly Corpe says, “The video explores how a past choice can haunt someone later in life. We wanted to push this idea to the extreme, blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction throughout the narrative to create a surreal atmosphere. I think that filming the video in one continuous shot helped to make the transitions between fact and fiction uncannily seamless, while simultaneously magnifying the raw emotions of the protagonist.”
‘Mistakes’ is taken from the brand new EP Mad, which opens with the huge anthemic lead single and title track. The rest of the EP weaves between touching, soulful moments and passionate outbursts of sonic energy amid graceful melodies, captivating harmonies and enthralling songwriting.
‘Mistakes’ and ‘Mad’ have received great support from tastemakers including the likes of BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing and Clash Magazine.
Regarding the EP Olly says, “This EP feels like another step up from everything we’ve done in the past, and has allowed us to test the waters in terms of our sound. All the songs on the EP share the common theme of longing for the past but in a way we’ve never been so excited for the future.”
The King’s Parade kicked off their headline tour in support of the Mad EP last night in Madrid and will play a further 10-dates across the UK and Europe. Full tour dates can be found below:
