Free Download: The Accidentals – Parking Lot EP

the accidentals the parking lot ep

The Accidentals are releasing their new self-produced EP Parking Lot via Noisetrade and can be downloaded below. They are Katie Larson (bass, guitar, piano, cello, vocals), Savannah Buist (bass, guitar, piano, violin, vocals) and Michael Dause (drums, guitar, backing vocals), and Parking Lot tells the powerful story of coming of age and coming home.

The EP is a compilation of moments over the last three years, from college applications (“The End”) and commercialism (“Epitaphs”), to the band’s first trip to SXSW (“Sixth Street”). The title track is about the struggle to break through in the music industry and the talented people who never see the light. It later became an inside joke with the under-age band that was left out in the parking lot until stage-time on many occasions.

A bonus version of “Parking Lot” features wordsmith Rick Chyme, whose lyric is the perfect message of the song’s frustrations – “Push it past potential each day, manifest your dreams.”

The band has announced an extensive list of tour dates.
