The Pacing Party
What a tremendous sound The Pacing Party have. Think Conor Oberst singing lead for Modest Mouse with a more melodic sound. That’s what The Pacing Party has. Daniel Gardner, front person for the band, says:
“Creep/Freak’ is a stupidly brazen unrequited love song. The narrator has these grand romantic visions of how this girl and him would be perfect together, while the girl is simply not interested. It’s a tongue in cheek, futile plea for a chance to prove that he would be the best at loving her.”
Coming from small-town Alaska through the music scene of Portland, Oregon, The Pacing Party is Daniel Gardner, and he is obviously a literate, straight-forward thinking, hopeless romantic, which I totally identify with. This is a great sound, nostalgic while futuristic at the same time. Watch out for The Pacing Party. This band is going to be HUGE.
