Listen to our podcast preview of the new album.
The sound of The Cherry Tree Parade is an amalgam of influences strung together craftily and sometimes jarringly. Alternating between mighty guitar rock and softer elements like folky banjo and whispered vocals, the Kansas City group comes out of the gate strong on its debut self-titled EP. Brothers Jon and Matthew Collins collaborate on the music and lyrics with a supporting cast that includes guitarist Brandon Chavez and drummer Alex Reed. Their chemistry is apparent on tracks like “Perfectly Polyphonic,” which—true to its title—features multiple vocalists blending harmoniously.
