Formed in 2006, Charlottesville, Virginia, pop-rockers Parachute was first heard by many when Nivea skincare commercials started using hum-along earworms like “Under Control” and “She Is Love,” part of an endorsement deal that landed them on the televised New Year’s Eve stage in Times Square alongside Taylor Swift and the Jonas Brothers. Having spent over a year touring in support of their Wide Awake album, the band’s October 29 appearance at the Irenic is being promoted as an “intimate acoustic evening” featuring co-founding trio Will Anderson, Johnny Stubblefield, and Kit French performing stripped-down versions of tracks from all their releases. Looking over recent set lists, they recently debuted a new song called “Tell Me That You Love Me,” as well as adding “What Breaks My Heart” to their live shows for the first time, and they also occasionally cover “That’s What I Like,” by Bruno Mars.
