Parlour Suns, you beautiful bastards.

“Wait For Me”, the bands latest offering, is nothing short of pop-rock perfection and a clear insight into the bands potential beyond their already formidable ability. Beautifully written and executed without a hitch, this anthemic track toys with multiple layers and dynamics, providing plenty of elements for the listener to play around with whilst also maintaining a composed structure. The lovechild of You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis and Deaf Havanas greatest hits crammed into one catchy release.

We put Parlour Suns on for a gig earlier this year supporting Slackrr as part of our first-ever show back after the pandemic. They took to the stage with energy and professionalism, working the crowd and never missing a beat. I have really high hopes for these guys and I’m excited to be able to watch their journey!

What a great couple mo this it’s been for Parlour Suns – it’s been hit after hit. This time around, their latest track ‘T-Shirt’ released in the last couple of weeks is yet another display of their ongoing talent, turning their foundation into concrete beneath them.

This latest track moves in perfect balance with rhythmic drums and bass, building to an explosive rush of instruments for the bridge. There’s a softer feel to ‘T-Shirt’ than previous releases, but that’s not because of a lack of energy. Vocally and lyrically, ‘T-Shirt’ feels more personal; it feels more calculated in it’s lyrics. Either Parlour Suns are top tier convincing short fiction writers and contemporary poets, or their ability to channel real life experiences into music with such relatable open mindedness that the track takes on a life of its own. You see, ‘T-Shirt’ has stand out qualities, and while all we’ve got from Parlour Suns is banger after banger, ‘T-Shirt’ doesn’t have that iconic “wave your hands in the air as the chorus hits” kind of vibe, but a more connected feeling between artist and listener.

Once again, Parlour Suns have gone above and beyond, providing us with not only another track to get your kicks off to, but one that has the drive of human passion behind it.

Parlour Suns most recent release ‘What Else Can I Do Wrong?’ solidifies my previous review. It’s yet another demonstration of chemistry between instruments that compliment the vocals. ‘What Else Can I Do Wrong?’ features that bouncy, pop tones wrapped in a layer of mystery – there’s areas in which you expect a heavy break but instead met with groovy beats. If you’re not moving to this track, then you’re simply not listening loud enough. A very favourable part of this track is that subtle but deep pounding bass that contrasts the clean rhythmic guitar. It’s a perfectly balanced track, featuring balanced levels of instrumentals that allow each component to let their talents shine through.

It’s fair to say that Parlour Suns have found their sound and did so prior to this release, but what this track does is emphasise their continued passion and talent for songwriting. These are no one trick ponies, they’re proving their continuous growth and development as a band. They’re showing their strengths within their genre which is setting them apart from the crowd. Once more, they’ve displayed their perfectionism through high quality work that will give the industry a run for their money.

Again, this IS a band that will one day, fill an arena of people, but until then, these lads have a very exciting career that will be inspiring to watch.

Rock music is very much alive, and Parlour Suns are an example of that. Kicking off my introduction to Parlour Suns with their latest release ‘Figure It Out,’ I’m thrown a deep bass and cadenced drums. Science says that the sound of a shallow bass is what makes a track catchy and appealing, and that is certainly what Parlour Suns have created with this track. The reverberation of the track is balanced so incredibly well that it draws attention to the talent of the clean guitar notes and emphasises the variance of vocals. I’m already blown away – Parlour Suns oozes talent with their song writing in their recent release.

A more combative start with their (also recent but previous release) ‘Embers.’ It’s a reminder that rock the rock genre has such a varied sound, and this Plymouth based quartet are showing their expertise in every corner. ‘Embers’ display an ability to slow down, speed up, stop and start at all the right places. The sound you hear from these two tracks makes you believe that these lads have been doing this for years, but more surprisingly, the faces behind the music belong to a group of early 20’s friends. Knowing this only makes it more exciting to follow Parlour Suns. The talent displayed in these tracks are astonishing! Forming in 2020, the group has already found an established sound for themselves that offers so much room for movement and experimentation.

There’s little to compare the band, however if you’re a fan of the Glastonbury line ups, then you’re likely going to be a fan of Parlour Suns. They don’t feel like a small time band that would be playing intimate shows to ten or so people – you can quite easily envision them in big venues with hundreds (hell, I’d even say thousands) of fans reciting the lyrics back at them.

“Embers” by Parlour Suns is probably one of the best debut single releases I’ve heard in a long, long time. Where do I start?!

The vocals are incredible, as someone who used to be a huge fan of this genre of power-rock music a few years ago, I’m quite specific when it comes to vocal tones because they carry so much of the sound. Lucky for these guys, they’ve got a vocalist who has a formidably dynamic range that compliments the instrumentation beautifully without stealing the spotlight.

Combined with the airy guitars and punching drums, Parlour Suns have mastered the art of pop-rock songwriting in the space of one bloody release! A fantastic step into the underground industry that will definitely make a mark when the right ears are tuned in, especially for fans of artists like Deaf Havana, You Me At Six, Young Guns etc.

I’ve got my eye on you guys.
