Hailing from Essex, Morning Parade are currently one of the most hotly tipped bands for 2011. Look on the internet and you will see that every reputable music and style site across the board including Gigwise, Q The Music, Clash, i-D, Vogue.it and ASOS are tipping this young five-piece for big things next year.

Their pulsating synths, energetic guitars and candid lyrics fuse to create a supercharged sound. They release their debut single ‘Under The Stars’ this week, which has been receiving early support across Radio 1, XFM, 6 Music, Absolute and Q music; with Zane Lowe championing the band on his website. The band have been recording their debut album at the legendary 13 Studios owned by Damon Albarn with longtime Blur collaborator, Jason Cox.
