This weeks ONErpm Hitmaker is The National Parks with their track “Summer of Memories.” This upbeat pop-folk song is the lead single of their deluxe version of 8th Wonder.
Since they formed in 2013, the band has released five other full-length albums. Incredibly written and performed, they have an atmospheric sound that is able to fill the room. The songs feature beautifully layered harmonies with violin, smooth guitar, and bright drums. With a warm sunny sound, this 4-piece Utah band is expanding upon their already incredible album 8th Wonder.
“Summer of Memories” is a nostalgic piece at it’s core. The National Parks are storytellers at heart and its showcased in this song. It’s about losing yourself in the moment, and you lose yourself in the track itself. The imagery is clear and powerful, creating an incredible landscape through music. Backed with striking percussion and brilliant acoustic riffs, the song is adrenaline driven. Filled with adventure, the song is perfect for an unforgettable summer night.
