The Parsons Rocket Project is an Atlanta based band consisting of Jody Hasty (Synth, Electric Piano, Drums), Paul Curry (Bass), Benjamin Price (Guitar, Percussion), and Jeff Holt. They proffer in a mixture of ambient, dreampop, and shoegaze genres to great affect. Their debut self-titled EP is on the horizon and will be out August 11, 2017. For now, the band is releasing a bit of a teaser with their track “Interlude I”. “Interlude I” is a beautiful ambient piece with a dense drone providing a floor over which spacy synths and lightly, dazzling guitars play a melody. The bass and percussion are sparse and never invade too much, leaving “Interlude I” as a compositionally gorgeous ambient track. Having heard the entirety of the EP, I can tell you that it is a preview of something special on the horizon. I can tell you that, six brief tracks in total, Parsons Rocket Project’s self-titled EP is a symphony of pain and triumph, blending various genres masterfully to evince a sonically evocative tale.
