‘I write songs visually, like I paint,’ says singer songwriter and artist Ria Parfitt. ‘Everything’s an image.’
The main driving force behind Ria Plays – alongside bass player Justin Seeger and drummer Jonah Webb – certainly writes a quirky tune. From ‘lobster telephones’ to ‘vultures picking at naked bones’, the visual artist paints a picture with her ‘songs for the strange’ and the band’s new EP – entitled Jar of Fishes – takes us to a world of estranged and damaged people, reflections on lost love and the bizarre nighttime antics of wildlife... all delivered with a backdrop of angular and raw alternative rock.
The band released their first offering in 2018 – the single Postcard – and quickly followed up with two other tracks, Volcano and Good Luck With Love. The Jar of Fishes EP, released in May 2019, takes the journey a stage further with a heavier, more focused sound.
On tour, Ria Plays have supported Colorado band The Velveteers, London-based rockers Indya and west country songstress Verity White as well as appearing at a number of festivals, including Worcester Music Festival.
