Bio

parklands is the culmination of several years of experimentation and self-discovery. After about 6 failed band attempts between them, the boys came together finally upon realising that MAYBE this combination would work, and so far, it has.

A decision to book a gig led to a decision to curate a setlist, refine a sound, and effectively, parklands was born. With only a few gigs under their belt in this specific lineup, the boys collectively have been playing together and around each other for years.

2020 was meant to be the year of non-stop gigging and bringing parklands to the people. Alas, the universe had something else in mind and the lads could only put on a few shows throughout the year. However, they've used all this extra time to record and release three tunes which is sick. Certain Extent, Anchor, and now Retrograde. Streamable at the usual places :)

plenty of promise here! esp in the vocals and construction of the different hooks - both are really strong. keep flexin' those muscles and uploading!
