“While ‘Parallel Parking’ is undoubtedly a love story, I also wanted to express my gratitude for everything I have going well in my life and hopefully emit and spread positivity through my music.” -Arden Jones
On the surface, the upbeat car-themed track perfectly captures the feeling of infatuation and excitement in a new potential love interest and budding relationship, but beyond the lyrics, Arden aims to spread positivity through his illuminating outlook on life and undeniably infectious energy.
The music video offers a new perspective to the narrative, with Arden playing the seemingly unimportant and background role of a golf caddy while his love interest clearly isn’t being treated right. The vibrant visual accompaniment offers a triumphant, happy resolve and a pleasantly surprising role reversal, ending with the love interest handing him his car keys instead as they happily walk off into the sunset together.
