Album of the Week 25/02: Theme Park

London Three-piece Theme Park have released their self-titled debut album today via Transgressive Records.

Produced by Luke Smith (Foals, The Maccabees), the  album follows a series of singles released throughout 2012 such as 'Jamaica', 'Two Hours' and most recently 'Tonight', which kept us wanting more of their summery melodic electronic pop music.

“I want it to be appreciated as a pop album, rather than the debut of a left field East London band” says singer/guitarist Miles.

“Some albums you listen to and every song is nicely formed. That’s what we’re aiming for. It should all feel effortless and un-self conscious.” The aim of ‘Theme Park’, says singer Marcus, is to capture a moment in time – that rich period of life between school and the early 20s. It’s hopefully an optimistic album, and I’d like to think slightly romantic. I don’t mean that in the love sense, but in the slightly idealistic way. It’s easy to be cynical – I like to give the world a chance.” And boy he couldn't describe it better...

While listening, we can only think on a beach day, and it will definitely put you in the mood for fun time. In general, this album is a great debut with a lot of personality, so fresh and fun to listen, with  sounds that it will stick in your head. 

We highly recommend this album, so get your copy HERE right now! 

**Theme Park reached the TOP 20 on Kool Rock Radio's Best New Bands of 2011 list. Their single 'Milk' peaked at #22 on our Best Tracks of 2011 chart and 'Two Hours' peaked at #51 on our Best Tracks of 2012.
