TESS PARKS & ANTON NEWCOMBE – ” Friendlies “

Tess Parks collaboration with Anton Newcombe, ‘I Declare Nothing’ completely blew me away by it when I first heard it and then their appearance at the Liverpool Psychedelica Festival was even better. I really liked the wonderful complexity of the album: the seemingly endless layers of sound, and how they placed layers on top of each other with care and precision. On top of this Parks’ deep and soulful voice was a revelation to me, contrasting near on perfectly with Anton Newcombe’s arrangements. This is a work that is borne of a summer spent together in Berlin: a climate which is hot, close and sensual. It is an album, like the city, that overloads the senses; yet also has a fragility to it that seeks to find meaning within this aural wall.
