Amsterdam duo City Park look for a ‘Remedy’ in new single

City Park continue to explore their texturized, deconstructed pop sound with newest offering ‘Remedy,’ taken from upcoming sophomore EP out next year.

The duo Sjaak and Saux have been making music together for over 10 years, starting in their Amsterdam high school’s big band. They have since been following in the footsteps of indie R&B pop artists before them, racking up impressive streams on their debut self-titled EP.
 
Recently supporting Far Caspian, Gus Dapperton and RhyeCity Park are steadily establishing themselves, gearing up for a sophomore EP in 2020 – their sound paralleling a nightly jam session in Vondelpark with Peter Gabriel and Blood Orange. 
 
 Citing Steve Lacey and MorMor as points of reference, new single ‘Remedy’ diverts from the more polished sound of past material, made with playing it live in mind – giving more room for fuzzy guitars, even boasting a solo.
 
Written on a morning of making music after a night out, “it’s about looking for a remedy for regretful nights.” It’s a relatable feeling: “the times you know you’re not going to do yourself any good, staying at parties too long waiting for something to happen.”
 
Having previously worked with independent artists from Korea (Jiye Kim) and Germany (Tatjana Prenzel), City Park have recruited the Dutch artist Zarlasht Zia for the artwork for ‘Remedy’.
 
Effortlessly pivoting between sleek and hazy Tame Impala-esque guitar, City Park continue to explore wistful, textural soundscapes.
