No Need to Be Downhearted

The latest album from Electric Soft Parade, entitled No need to be Downhearted, is fantastic. The album has a mix of easy listening pieces that are perfect for a relaxed evening and fun light hearted songs that can put a smile on just about anyone’s face. As the band’s name suggests the music has a soft, electronic accompaniment that rounds out the music, along with catchy beats, enjoyable guitar and meaningful lyrics. My favorite track on the album is “Have you ever felt like it’s too late.” The lyrics are great and the rhythm is fun and catchy. Electric Soft Parade avoids the pitfalls that some bands fall into, where every song sounds the same. Each piece on the album is different, yet has the distinct sound that allows the listener to be able to immediately recognize what band it is. I highly recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of the 80s music genre, brit pop and intelligent pop music in general.
