Parquet Courts, one of the best indie rock bands of the decade, has a new album out, writes Dan DeLuca for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Glenmoore resident Sean Yeaton plays bass for the band, which has successfully teamed up with Danger Mouse and Brian Burton. They helped Parquet Courts direct its energy into dance rock with influences from bands like the Minutemen.
Yeaton, the only member of the band not currently living in Brooklyn, decided to move to Chester County after his son was born.
“I met my wife in New York about five years ago,” he said. “When our son was born, it was clear it was just not going to work.”
The move made sense as his wife Meg grew up near Kennett Square and now works at The Haverford School as an archivist.
Now settled into suburban life, Yeaton is always excited to take his children to see his band play gigs for all ages in New York.
“They’ve never seen me do this,” he said. “For all they know, I’m just some guy who watches Westworld on TV all day. I’m going to prove to them otherwise.”
