Atwood Magazine Premieres ‘Currents’

PREMIERE: PASSION & PERSEVERANCE IN THE NATIONAL PARKS’ DRIVING “CURRENTS” From what we’ve heard so far, Places promises to find The National Parks continuing their upwards ascent. Lead single “Places” and the soul-stirring “At the Heart” suggest that Brady Parks has pushed himself farther on this record than ever before, both musically and topically. Contributions from band members seem to be at an all-time high as well, with each instrumentalist taking on more responsibilities to carry melodies, harmonies, rhythm and more.

When you’re standing on the edge of something big you just need to take that leap of faith. For the full inteview: The National Parks Take A Leap of...
