While you were running around like a chicken with your head cut off this summer, rock collective The Hails – comprised of Andrew Escobar, Robbie Kindsley, Zach Levy, Dylan McCue, and Franco Solari – were busy releasing an impressive five track EP titled Impel. But it’s the single “Parking Lot” that hooked us, with its slightly bluesy feel and smooth, focused vocals. Set at a leisurely tempo, the song is about a romantic encounter in a parking lot, a time of endless possibilities in love. But sometimes chance encounters are just that, and love isn’t a factor.

So which would this song be about? Find out for yourselves, and check out the next track on your autumn playlist, just below!

Impel is available now. Keep up with The Hails here.
