Debut album from Horse Guards Parade
Off the back of their impressive self-titled EP, and live dates supporting the likes of Jarvis Cocker and Pavement (including an appearance at All Tomorrow Parties), Horse Guards Parade are ready to release their debut album, Ten Songs. It’s been a few years in the making, but the Hull based band has lovingly honed these songs into nuggets of timeless songwriting gold.
For Horse Guards Parade the song always comes first, as the band explain the decision behind the album’s title; “The song is always the most important thing and that is why we called the album Ten songs. There were other titles knocking around, but they all seemed to detract from the main focus: tunes, harmony and lyrics,” explains singer and guitarist James Waudby. Indeed, it’s the strength of the band’s songs that has attracted regular airtime on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2 among others, completing sessions for BBC introducing and Simon Mayo along the way. The band was also asked to play at the Pavement curated All Tomorrow’s Party festival, as well as supporting the iconic band for a show at Glasgow’s Barrowlands.
