Jon Parks – “I Don’t Want to Fight Anymore”

Based out of New Hamburg, Canada, Jon Parks crafts what he calls “pensive pop music”, a good fit for “fans of Belle and Sebastian, David Bowie, Wilco or Ron Sexsmith.” The chamber-pop sophistication of Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy also comes to mind, especially on bright new track “I Don’t Want to Fight Anymore”, where string flourishes, reflective keys, and a contagious vocal pop melody co-exist for very easy-listening catchiness. By the time exulting strings sweepingly re-arise at 02:30, the song’s majestic achievement is in full sight, a fully unpretentious and nicely composed pop song fit for all ears.
