About the Album:

From the Basement  is Bird Parade's debut EP, released on March 12, 2019. The EP consists of five tracks about the pains of approaching middle age. The songs cover divorce (Opening Act), nostalgia for the simpler times of youth (In the Afternoon), depression and the dangers of undiagnosed mental illness (Gonna Be Bad), alcoholism (Ruby Scars), and what it means to survive through it all and continue pushing forward, while still acknowledging and perhaps occasionally pining for the past (Back in Time). The album was written in the months after singer/songwriter Francis Baptiste's marriage dissolved. With that in mind, the writing and recording of this album was very much a healing process for Baptiste, who struggled with depression and alcoholism during the production. Such being the case,  From the Basement  serves as a testament to the healing power of music.
