Matt Banks (vocals), Owen Stephens (guitar), George Hopkins (bass) and Joe Strauss (drums) have been writing and gigging constantly since 2015, perfecting their arena sized sound and firmly establishing themselves as the South West’s most exciting prospect in indie rock.
They take inspiration from the greats. Namely the Arctic Monkeys, The Jam, The Strokes, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and others of a similar vein. With towering riffs, soaring melodies, and palpable charisma their live show is a refreshing injection of pure solid energy. It must be seen to be believed.
Their debut EP titled ’We Are The Gods’, was released on all major platforms on March 23rd, and their brand new single 'Penny Drop' was released December 11th with an accompanying music video released on August 24th. Listen to their latest single 'Thirtysomethings' here:
‘Incredible lyrics. Ridiculously talented. A brilliant brilliant British indie rock band’ - Adam Crowther, BBC Radio Bristol.
‘We•Are•Parkas are one of Bristol’s most promising bands. Convicting, intense and uptight indie delivered with a Gallagher swagger and lashings of rock and roll like it should be.’ - Reuben Myles, RMT Productions."
