Covet release “parachute” (https://smarturl.it/covetband), a second single from the Bay Area band’s forthcoming album, technicolor (June 5, Triple Crown Records). but unlike all Covet music to date, “parachute” features vocals; Guitar player Yvette Young’s vocals to be exact.
“This track, ‘parachute,’ is really special to me,” explains Yvette. “I remember I wrote it basically in one sitting and immediately I heard that it needed lyrics. My whole rule for writing is to never rule anything out, as long as it serves the music… so here we are, at Covet’s first departure from being instrumental. The song is about taking a risk for yourself and stepping away from something or something that once made you feel safe, only to realize that you never needed any of it in the first place. We hope you enjoy it and that it uplifts you.”
The band previously previewed the 10-song album with the release of “nero” and its hilariously quirky, video game-inspired video (https://youtu.be/8a-GGIQlBns). Fans are encouraged to take a crack at the song’s guitar solo by posting their own playthrough video to social media and tagging the band. The winner receives a 30-minute, Skype-based guitar lesson with Yvette. More details can be found on the band’s Facebook page (facebook.com/covetband).
