Still Parade is a new project that we just got hip to. The German dream folk project is the brainchild of one Niklas Kramer. He just released the final piece, “Beach”, to his new four-song Fields EP. The song can only be described as a musical journey that reaches near, far, and wide over its five plus minutes of gentle rolling melodies. It is a lush compliment to the other three tracks that have been released over the past year, including the title track, which might very well be our favorite of the bunch. You can buy the EP on limited edition vinyl courtesy of Day By Day Records/Serve & Volley Records here. Listen below.
