NATL PARK SRVC Releases Two New Songs “Alice, Illusions, And the Jack of Hearts” & “Our Own Pace”
Twin Cities-based indie rock band NATL PARK SRVC, consisting of Dylan Woytcke (guitar/vocals), Jared Leger (guitar/vocals), Nathan Zillmer (bass), Sam Tudor (violin), Wes Muilenburg (saxophone), Joe Keyport (trombone), and Sage Livergood (drums), Shayla Larson (vocals) and Whitney Oachs (vocals), will release their sophomore album “MAGICIAN” on October 25, 2023.
From the album, the band released two new songs “Alice, Illusions, And the Jack of Hearts” and “Our Own Pace” as a double a-side single on September 27, 2023.
The band lead singer Dylan Woytcke said of two songs, “This is an album of two quite different halves. These two songs close out the first half, which is very emotionally reactive, and less introspective. The voicing of the songs on this half are more emotionally immature, more rooted in outward facing pain. As such, 'Alice...' serves as a kaleidoscopic song about a person who moves through the world without care, and how mesmerizing, beautiful, and dangerous that can be for loved ones.”
- “Our Own Pace” began life as an instrumental demo brought forward by NPS drummer Sage Livergood and serves as both a closing note to side one, while hinting at the path side two will take. Sage Livergood, noting how the A-side is rooted in heartache, while the B-side tackles what comes next, states that “while it is riven with defeat and longing, it also has a sense of acceptance - ‘You can go, at your own pace.’”
The new album comprises 16-track and is their first body of work in two years.
Dylan Woytcke notes that “real introspection, admittance of personal failings, moving through the world with humility and a healthy level of shame is what drives the path forward on 'MAGICIAN'”
