The Electric Soft Parade are an English psychedelic pop band from Brighton, comprising brothers Alex and Thomas White, the creative core of the band, as well as a number of other musicians with whom they record and perform live, most recently including Andrew Mitchell (of Dundee-based group The Hazey Janes) and Damo Waters, as well as long-standing bass/keyboard player, Matthew Twaites.

The Electric Soft Parade is made up of the White brothers, Tom and Alex (who are also in The Rakes) and hail from Brighton. Their first album was released in 2002, and received critical success, including a Mercury Music Prize nomination. This, their follow up second album, consists of less tracks, but in my opinion better overall songs. The sound of the band is simply amazing, with layers of sound build up over the songs, especially coming through in the middle section of 'Chaos'. The title track really stands out, as it contains numerous musical styles that seem to blend perfectly. The American Adventure is a quality album by a quality band who deserve to have far more popularity. Hopefully album number three will contribute to bigger success.

Needless to say, The Electric Soft Parade's follow-up was eagerly awaited. Sparser from the onset, with its almost plain white cover, 'The American Adventure' appears to have a more grown-up agenda. While 'Holes in the Wall' captured the testosterone-filled fun of a couple of grinning lads with guitars, the second album sees the boys setting their sights on something bigger, more serious. And they pull this off efficiently on the truly lovely 'Bruxellisation'. The album's first single, 'Lose Yr Frown', is the best thing on offer, with a catchy chorus that trips off Alex's guitar with an upbeat ease. It's what the young band do best and they should remember this. The American Adventure' is nowhere as interesting as it thinks it is. In fact, it's pretty dull as adventures go. More like a trip to the supermarket than a Kerouac-style odyssey.
The Electric Soft Parade are still young enough for their label to make an issue of their age. For the record, Tom and Alex are 19 and 21 respectively. But as they say in football, if you're good enough, you're old enough. And after a Mercury nomination for their debut Holes In The Wall, no-one should need to make excuses for the White brothers. Having said that, youth can be the only mitigating factor for some of the lyrics on The American Adventure. ESP have often paid tribute to the influence of Ride.
