"Wolves shall succeed for teachers, grievous Wolves,
Who all the sacred mysteries of Heav'n To
thir own vile advantages shall turne
Of lucre and ambition, and the truth
With supersitions and tradition taint,
Left onely in those written Records pure,
Though not but by the Spirit understood. "
Paradise Lost - Milton
We at Transgressive are sick of a moaning industry paralyzed by lack of money, fearful of supporting the most important new artists in the country. We have launched a new imprint : paradYse to frivolously endorse the genius sounds of new artists with limited runs of 7"s, digital accessibility and Martinis. And we're delighted to announce the debut release from ParadYse Records will be a single from the almighty Theme Park.
'A Mountain We Love' is the sort of addictive yet emotive electronic guitar pop that will soundtrack summers, with chiming guitars, infectious percussive samples and sumptuously restrained vocals from twin brother frontmen Miles and Marcus Haughton. 'Wax', meanwhile, is epic balladry of the most subtle order - within 20 seconds, one of the choruses of the year ensnares the listener and immediately affirms Theme Park's position as one of the most exciting new songwriting forces in our midst today, managing to attain that rare balance of feeling comfortingly familiar and yet not sounding like anyone else.
Theme Park comprise the aforementioned Haughtons, who share singing and guitar duties, as well as third guitarist Oscar Manthorpe and Louis Bhose on bass.
