We continue our series on local music Wednesday with the National Parks. No, we’re not talking about Zion, Arches, and Bryce Canyon. The National Parks are a Provo-based band whose debut album tilted to the folksy side of indie rock. Their newest release features a beefed-up indie-pop sound inspired by the energy of performing live. The band members say it took a leap of faith to explore new musical ground, leading them to discover what can happen when you pursue your passion without any limits.
The National Parks new album, “Until I Live,” was released earlier this month. You can catch them live at Urban Lounge in downtown Salt Lake City on November 14. If you happen to be in Los Angeles on October 3, the National Parks are playing that evening at Open Space Theatre.
