BLACK MARKET KARMA – ” Friends In Noise ” feat Tess Parks

Posted: November 17, 2022 in MUSIC

‘The Sky Was All Diseased’ with Tess Parks, the first single from the upcoming album ‘Friends In Noise’ A collaborative record between Black Market Karma and their musical allies, This video was filmed by Stan from the window of a Japanese Bullet Train cut with footage captured by Tess back in 2014/2015 when her and BMK first met and started to tour together. Good times! Some words about the song from Stan: “Tess and I first met in 2014 when she reached out and sent a very kind message about my music.

I dug what she was doing too so, upon her arrival to the UK, we met up and became friends, touring a fair bit together in the following years around Europe. During the downtime, we would often hang out at my studio. I’d had the groove and music to this song floating around in my brain for a while, but had no lyrics or vocal part. I happened to play it one time we were at the studio together and I drop into my own world when I’m making things up, but after a while I noticed Tess out of the corner of my eye scribbling down lyrics. She started humming a melody to herself and I loved what she was doing so we went with it. I added in one more verse with an different vocal melody and a few lines at the end of the song and there it was – ‘The Sky Was All Diseased’. I laid the music down a few days later and recorded Tess’ vocals which became the track as you hear it now”

Some words about the song from Tess: “I guess this was written in 2014? 2015? While I was living in Dartford a few doors down from Stan. Had a few very nice sessions at Stan’s studio where we pretty much instantly wrote a few really cool songs. It’s been 8 years and the time has finally come!!!

I’m excited to share this. This song seems to be a reflection on the weather at the time”
