Parkway & Columbia casts a line, and immediately you’re hooked on their latest single, “Superior”.
With some serious influence from American Football – and musical glimpses from other midwest emo greats, the gentle, somewhat mathy, guitar riffs carry an almost calming tone to them. Keys accentuate the melody and really hammer down on the emotional weight of the track. Soft vocals ring throughout, carrying the listener from one movement to the next; the whole time the song building towards a crescendo.
Led by songwriter Tyler Floyd, the Michigan-based rock outfit is gearing up to release their sophomore LP, Wanderer, due out next month. Until then, follow the band on Facebook and be sure to peep those tour dates!
