The Parachute Brigade’s track “Wanderer” is an unexpectedly fitting song to hear as a new year begins. With a folksy and atmospheric variety of folk rock that conjures to mind the likes of Band of Horses, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters & Men, “Wanderer” is a tale of those who haven’t yet found their path. The bridge’s lyric, “Wanderer what are you doing here / another blind road, another year” will resonate at a deep level with listeners that are entering 2019 with more questions than answers. However, it’s within the warm male/female harmonies and melodies, the wonderful sonic build during the bridge, and the impassioned delicacy with which this track was crafted where any wanderers listening can draw inspiration and hope. So take a listen, recede into yourself for a few minutes, and see what sparks might go off when you come out the other side.
