British quintet, Kaiser Chiefs, sallied forth into our playlists again with their new single “Parachute,” an aerated electropop with arm-stretching soundscape that has replaced their old rock flair with pop panache. It sounds like the celebratory switch to new sound experimenting and the advent of a new album that seems to shed away their conventional sonic skin:

Maybe you thumb uped it or downed it, but the song on its own is an upliftingly, summer-yay song. And hey, let’s face it – you can’t expect artists to stay stuck in one genre. That’s like telling a Millennial to stick to one job for his/her entire life, which ain’t happening. If you don’t know Kaiser Chiefs, they started out as an indie band back in 2000 and were originally named Parva. They got several hits including “Ruby” (2007), “I Predict a Riot” (2005), and many more. “Parachute” is from their upcoming record Stay Together, which will be out on October 7. They have show dates coming up:

6/18 – Bedgebury Pinetum (Goudhurst, UK)

6/26 – Dalby Forest (Pickering, UK)

7/3 – Delamere Forest (Frodsham, UK)

7/10 – Cannock Chase Forest (Cannock, UK)

7/11 – London Palladium (London, UK) ***For tips on how to get there, interactive map, and what to do when you arrive, click the venue link (courtesy of London Theatres)
