Emerald Park, one of northern Europe’s most successful bands releasing music under a Creative Commons license is back after 5 years of silence with the brand-new EP “Basement Sessions”. Their new work will be released in two versions: as a traditional 5-track digital version and as a Creative Commons 4-track version.
As always, Emerald Park tend to move among different parts of the indie genre influenced by bands such as The Cure, Arcade Fire, James, Depeche Mode and Blur. In every song you will recognize the constant presence of melancholy but somewhere around the corner happiness is in reach. The lyrics are about the feeling of being misplaced and searching for something else, something bigger in life. Or maybe the grass isn’t greener on the other side?
“Rules Don’t Apply”, which was released as a single last summer and is now remastered, is the most electrified and energetic track, while “The Haze”, “Decease”, and “Bigfoot” are the most melancholic songs. The fresh version of “Bigfoot” and a new track called “She Sees Something Else” are the two songs that have really caught the essence of Emerald Park.
