MUSIC NEWS: Youth Sector Release New Single ‘Free Parking’

Youth Sector have released their new single Free Parking, taken from their forthcoming EP Quarrels.

“This one comes from the bones of an old song that got started years ago but it wasn’t quite there. I always liked the riff and I had the “four miles, five miles” sections so never quite tossed it out, and eventually in 2021 had another stab at it and overhauled most of the original song,” explains the band.

In all its iterations though, the song has always been about the fear of getting old and boring, and the “four miles, five miles for free parking” line refers to those dull exchanges grumbling about how far you had to go to find somewhere to park. In the final version, the metaphor took a life of its own and morphed into a surreal town planning session where I deal with the logistical issues of finding parking for the residents of a toy village: “these plastic people’s plastic permits only work in the week / how will they meet their plastic pals if they can’t park on the cheap?”
