Taken from their self-titled debut album, “I Don’t Want to Know You” is a confident and skillful rock anthem courtesy of Bostonian indie outfit Parks. Dark synth melodies are reminiscent of the 80s glam rock days, until the lead guitars take over with a Western rock tone. Brian King’s vocals are smooth and effortless, and when he lets the range fly during the choruses you’ll swear your listening to Matt Bellamy from Muse. Slick bass lines and airtight drumming provide the backbone for all of these melodic elements, resulting in a song that’s brimming with confidence, drive, and an infectious energy that will grab hold of listeners of all musical backgrounds and preferences.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Described as “a crisp, & precise take on garage pop” (Boston Globe), Parks distinguishes itself with dynamic live performances, lush instrumentation, rich three-part harmonies and sprightly sonics somewhere between fizzy Shins twists and fiery Strokes-esque turns. Audiences have noticed: The Boston Globe named the band “one to watch” and they were prominently featured in a Boston Phoenix cover story. Parks’ music has also been used on NBC, MTV and VH1.
