Listen to In the Wrong, from Australian alt-folk band The Royal Parks who are named after a beautiful park in Melbourne’s (Naarm) north, the land of which had long been a camping ground for ceremony for the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. The track features on their forthcoming debut album Suburb Home which will be launched at the Bella Union on the 29th of April.
Formally playing under the name ‘Dan and Amy’, 2016 saw The Royal Parks embark on an incredible
recording journey after legendary indie-folk producer Noah Georgeson (Joanna Newsom, Devendra
Banhart, Robin Pecknold [Fleet Foxes], HUSKY) offered to fly to Melbourne to produce and mix their
debut album Suburb Home after hearing their demos.
The album will be launched at the Bella Union on the 29th of April, with the record printed on vinyl
available at the show.
Suburb Home is an album of dreamy folk songs featuring soaring three-part-harmonies – songs dealing
with hope, loss, conflict, disappointment, nostalgia and reflective self-analysis about how we can do
better. The Royal Parks capture the melodies & harmonies of bands like Fleetwood Mac, Fleet Foxes,
First-Aid Kit, Paul Kelly and GOANNA.
