Based around the precocious talents of vocalist, guitarist, pianist and songwriter Chris Payn, Hightown Parade are a band that write songs like they have been doing this for years. “Choose” is the perfect introduction to the band. Two and a half minutes of instantly memorable bombastic rock. There’s a theatricality to their sound that’s flamboyant and musically diverse, echoing the likes of Queen and T-Rex. This is mixed with a simple Rock’n’Roll revivalism and radio friendly pop rock. Hightown Parade produce infectious melodies woven together by Chris Payn’s voice, a stomping rhythm and groove led by bassist lo Kaloudi with a vigorous dialogue between Galen Stapley’s eccentric guitar and Chris Sampson’s guitar and piano.
