Seemingly heavily inspired by the sound of the 60’s and recorded by Kevin Basko (Foxygen, The Lemon Twigs), Cherry Parke the moniker of Will Wiggins hailing from New Jersey has dropped ‘Captain Bullseye’ and b-side ‘All Around the Moon’.
‘Captain Bullseye’ itself is a baroque pop, psychedelic-pop carnival reminiscent of Brian Wilson, Margo Guryan and modern day contemporaries and aforementioned Lemon Twigs. Glorious songwriting, ‘Captain Bullseye’ is a fun-filled blast.
B-side ‘All Around The Moon’ retains the Brian Wilson-eque theme with nods to ‘Pet Sounds’. It’s a blast for the beach days by the seaside building sandcastles, putting 2 pence coins into the penny machines by the arcades and fighting off seagulls that are trying to swipe your chips.
