Starting in Madison, WI, as the musical culmination of a
decade of friendship and playing in punk bands, Claire
Nelson-Lifson and Tyler Fassnacht (Fire Heads) began
writing the first of Proud Parent’s jangly, garage-infused
pop tunes in Nelson-Lifson’s living room. Shortly thereafter
Heather Sawyer (The Hussy) joined on drums and vocals,
turning the songwriting duo into a trio, and they quickly
garnered a devout following both locally and regionally,
and gained a reputation throughout the midwest as a live
power-pop force to be reckoned with.
Now a full fledged four piece, with Maggie Denman on
bass, the band has established its own unique dynamic with
three lead singers whose voices and songwriting stand
strong individually, yet blend together with such comfort
and ease that it is hard to imagine them apart.
After two live tapes and a full length cassette, the band is
ready with their first self-titled album on Dirtnap Records.
This record also marks the first release in eighteen years by
a band from the label’s hometown of Madison, WI.
The album begins and ends with a bang through a dozen
tightly wound tunes full of infectious, harmony ladened
choruses, ripping guitar solos and hooks for days. The
three singers converse, support, and share vocal duties like
passing around a bag of Halloween candy. Recorded and
mixed by Bobby Hussy (The Hussy, Cave Curse, Fire
Heads) at his own Hex Empire, it is about self-reflection,
jumping from saccharine adoration to heartfelt confession,
isolation, anxiety, loss and moving on.
