Quiet Parade‘s tentative first steps were as a solo project for Trevor Murphy, who released Please Come Home (We Hate It Here Without You) in 2011, a thoughtful contemplation on growing up in rural Nova Scotia, with an eye of emulating fellow Yarmouthians Brian Borcherdt of Holy Fuck and Wintersleep’s Paul Murphy. By 2013’s Old Haunts Quiet Parade turned up as a full band, bringing a bigger, wider canvas on which to showcase the same honest introspection.
