Premiere: James Parry – Young Emotions


Today, we’re excited to premiere the new single from Hobart resident James Parry. Young Emotions is opening track to be taken from the independent songwriter’s upcoming album, In The Lights. It features juicy guitar riffs, deft drums and uplifting organ, while James’ vocal tells the nostalgic story of young love with a dark twist.

Ripples from the story within Young Emotions touch the furthest parts of his new concept album. Finding himself in a wooden bungalow in Bali in 2013 with ten months of songwriting space in front of him, he did some serious some soul-searching. The result was a story using songs to explore a network of shared characters, inspired by the island character of his home state. “I wanted to focus on telling a story about the places I grew up with this album. The basic idea I was exploring was that people make bad decisions when they allow themselves to be driven by social fear.”

“Young Emotions” will be in digital stores on the 30th of September and James’ new album “In The Lights” will be released 14th of October.
