Music Monday: Parachute – ‘Wide Awake’ Review


Parachute released  their fourth studio album on Friday, March 11 titled “Wide Awake.” The 12-song LP showcases the bands wide range of jazz, pop and rock tunes that define the Virgina based trio.  

Composed of Will Anderson, Johnny Stubblefield and Kit French, the album kicks off with their single “Without You,” an upbeat, gospel-esque love song that stays true to the Parachute sound. Lead-singer, Anderson, showcases his vocal abilities in “What Side Of Love” and especially in “Everything” where he is accompanied by a piano. 

Fans get to swoon over their favorite member wishing they were singing “Lonely With Me,” “Jennie” and “When You Move” to them. 

Parachute gives us some edge with, (my personal favorite), “Love Me Anyway,” where’d they get that sass? There is a weird transition from “When You Move” and “Getaway,” being that you are in a slow song, pensive mood then bam the next song hits you hard. 

“Crave” is a fun, hip shaking song that was also pre-released and “What Breaks My Heart” is the classics Parachute forbidden love track in the likes of “What I Know” and “Mess I’ve Made.”

The album concludes with “Waking Up,” the perfect record, soft, mellow with a cheerful sound, to bring us to the end of the album. Overall it might be my favorite Parachute album since 2009’s “Losing Sleep.”
