Gathering the Pieces of a Broken Heart by The King's Parade
Gathering the Pieces of a Broken Heart is a raw “and open letter of love and loss” delivered in a seemingly nonchalant vocal style that builds up with an emotional crescendo. Powerful and relatable feelings draw modern blues fans to the music of The King’s Parade from the time the group was formed in 2012.
Simply stated, it is a perfect breakup song with its heart-wrenching lyrics sung by frontman Olly Corpe in a background of acoustic guitar, light percussion, and faint wafts of electronic keyboards. In this age of pop synths and digital sound mixes, it is refreshing to come across a talented performance such as this that still touches on classic elements.
