Solar Parachute returns with incredible new single 'Can't Help Myself'


Solar Parachute is the exciting new solo project of Drummer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Gaet Allard.


Known primarily for playing drums with bands such as Balinger, Stoptoii and Perfect Line Allard also has his own solo project called Solar Parachute where he sings, performs, and writes songs. The idea behind the project is a Solar Parachute is an oxymore device that feeds from vital energy of the sun and use it to speed the motion of a subject through the field of joy and inspiration.

The idea of this track was determination – about the need to keep going and, seeing the positive aspect in every situation. I thought of the lyrics while I was doing my run so the idea for the video was a natural progression. Everything was recorded from my home studio, except the drums at Hicaz Studio London. The mix was done by Darren Carikas.”


I am currently working on my next album which is almost ready. It should be out before Autumn. In the meantime, since the lockdown started, I’ve been releasing short songs on social media every week. They’re one-minute creations where I play every instrument and sing.
