Tess Parks and Anton Newcombe have released their second full-length album.
The 9-track eponymous album was recorded in Anton Newcombe’s Cobra Studios in Berlin last year and was mostly co-written by the duo and, to celebrate, the duo have revealed the new video for their lead song ‘Life After Youth’.
The pair first collaborated in 2015 on the album ‘I Declare Nothing’, which saw Far Out Magazine describe Park’s vocals as “unique and smoke-laden, and hypnotic” when it was named Album of the Month. A native of Toronto, Parks moved to London at the age of seventeen where she briefly studied photography before deciding to focus on music. Parks went on to make a lasting impression on Alan McGee, founder of Creation Records, and she became one of his first signings on 359 Music, releasing her debut record ‘Blood Hot’ in November 2013 to excellent reviews. “She’s only 24 and is already an amazing songwriter,” McGee once said. She just doesn’t quite know she is yet, her most beautiful quality is her lack of ego. Tess is an amazing lady”.
Her partner in crime, Newcombe, is a man who needs no introduction. A friend of Far Out Magazine and a man who recently penned his own article in this publication, a moment in which he offers insight into a musical mind who has done so much but strives for more. And more is what he keeps on producing.
