about

"Four minutes of timeless alt-rock, “Everything (Promise Me)” bridges the gap between the riff-heavy grunge of bands such as Smashing Pumpkins and the soaring optimism of classic rock." - RGM Press

"Memorable melodies and choruses that instantly grab you. Both the guitar work and drums are also standouts.The lyrics are gorgeously poetic with beautifully-written, evocative lines. When it comes to British indie musicians, you don’t get many that are this good with everything they create" - Leo Sigh Magazine

"The entire lyrical and message of “Everything (Promise Me)” is just so intelligent and beautifully written. The more you listen to it, the more you think, seeming to discover a little something more each time. And this one is definitely a joy to re-listen to many times. Musically, it is just so beautifully constructed." - Music Talkers

"Filled to the brim with raw honesty, ‘Everything (Promise Me)’ is sincere, genuine and sentimental. Yet, while the lyricism and melody lean toward a chaotic ambience, the kaleidoscopic soundscape has a lingering sense of optimism and humility. As Parkinson puts it, “everything is not as it seems”. Another triumph from the UK-based singer-songwriter!" - Other Side Reviews

lyrics

Everything Lyrics (c)James Parkinson 2020

Same house, same walls, a different day
The fields, the land, it’s all the same

Where you lay is a lie or is it a friend?
If I think I’m alone, I’ll know you’ll start to creep in

Forever still burning, a lifetime away
The scent of your ghost is buried deep within

It’s so simple now, nothing gets in
Breathing is easy when you keep it all in
I’ll love the day, when the day draws in
Oh promise me everything

Memory rejects the essence of sin
Same world, same hand that deals our whim

It’s so simple now, nothing gets in
Breathing is easy when you keep it all in
I’ll love the day, when the day draws in
Oh promise me everything
It’s so simple now, nothing gets in
Breathing is easy when you keep it all in
I’ll love the day, when the night begins
Oh promise me everything

Oh me promise me anything, everything

Promise me
Promise me
Promise me
Promise me

It’s so simple now, nothing gets in
Breathing is easy when you keep it all in
I’ll love the day, when the night begins
Oh promise me everything
