Morning Parade ‘Headlights’

U.K. band jams out in their new video

One sticky summer day last year, Morning Parade – the U.K. indie-rock five-piece comprised of longtime friends – casually hit record and belted out a batch of live videos. When they went back to check out the results, the band’s simplistic take on “Headlights,” the lead single from their forthcoming eponymous debut, had turned out quite well. “It happened by accident, to be honest,” frontman Steve Sparrow says of their new video, premiering exclusively on RollingStone.com. The clip finds the guitar-driven crew jamming out in circular formation. “Sometimes simplicity is overlooked, Sparrow adds. “We just wanted to show ourselves doing what we love.”  
 
Morning Parade’s debut album is set for release in June, on the heels of U.S. tour dates with the Kooks and riotous performances last month at SXSW. “2012 has been a blur,” Sparrow says from Wales, where the band is recording new songs for the LP. Things are about to get busier for the band:  they’re set to play several festivals and additional U.S. shows this summer, all before playing the Olympic Torch Relay in Hyde Park for the 2012 Summer games in London. “There is a certain majesty about the event, ” Sparrow says of the Olympics. “It’s about people pushing themselves to their physical and mental limits to create history. To be any part of it is a huge honor.”
