Parasouls launches new single, the Doctor Who-inspired "Can We, Can We"

10/11/2020 11:25:25 PM

Indie pop trio Parsaouls has recently released its newest song, “Can We, Can We.

Aims to captures the frustration of romantic yearning, this brisk but engaging alt-rock anthem serves as a tribute to a beloved sci-fi character from one of the longest-running TV series in the world, Doctor Who – with a sound that makes everyone remember the likes of The Cranberries and Frankie Cosmos.

“This is a funny story: Can We, Can We is actually the first song I’ve ever written back when I was seventeen,” guitarist and vocalist Dani Dimaano says. “I wrote about one of my favorite TV shows, Doctor Who. This song, in particular, is an ode to Rose Tyler and The Doctor in the TARDIS.”

The song was originally recorded in acoustic form and was written way back in high school by Dani and bassist Joshua Gaces. 

“We tweaked the rhythm a little bit so it would fit the band setting better,” Dani shares. “Also, fun fact: I really wanted to put in a dotted 8 delay somewhere in the song, so I spent so much time trying to learn that just to make sure it makes it to the record.”

The final version of “Can We Can We” – which is released through Lilystars Records –  is indicative of combined music influences that prompted Parasouls to create the song; which touches on a more playful but deceptively simple arrangement and anthemic pacing. It sets the tone for their future releases, where the music is written and produced with the right mix of inherent rawness, melodic sheen, and pop sensibility.
