“‘Parable Lickers’ is the oldest one of the bunch,” drummer Hugo Stanley explained in a statement. “We were performing a version of this song live when we previously toured, but it didn’t finish itself until just before we went to the studio. It’s the only track on this record with MIDI guitar, which was kind of a hallmark of our previous album, Rock Island. The sample used is a recording of a drumline playing at the high school across the street from Eve and Kasra’s old house in Kensington, PA.”
Nicks and Grazes arrives October 14 via Saddle Creek.
