Discovery: PARLOUR - Devil's Eyes

PARLOUR are another London quintet who like capitals to emphasise what it is you're actually listening to. There's no simple: 'oh, it's Parlour' here, it's all about PARLOUR, and how LOUD they can GO! That's the general theme to their music anyhow. They take an influence from a range of sources, some obvious, others more obscured through the stained glass windows. Just from viewing the above image, it's clear what PARLOUR's sound will be, and their intentions in creating this sound - like VISION FORTUNE who continue to astound listeners with their krautock fuelled noise rock. PARLOUR are no different, they will know of VISION FORTUNE, especially the knowing of bands creating psychedelic noises in London like Novella, who PARLOUR have a connection with through guitarist and producer Rory Attwell. Is it written in the history books already? that PARLOUR are indefinitely going to share their noises with the world on a major scale? Probably not - but they just might with the strength of their discography so far.

When listening to psychedelic music, I’m always listening to it in the dark (or a dimly lit room,) especially when it's raining outside and it's pitch black by 4pm... It's a perfect time to listen to psychedelic music, there's a more surreal moment than the vision of potheads listening to Hendrix in a field full of poppies in mid-July. The rain crashing down on the roof of your house, the grey clouds taking over the blue, creating this grim Banksy look, and the flicker of a lamp in the corner of your eye, waiting to be joined by the ceiling light come 6pm. 

PARLOUR's "Devil's Eyes" is great for this turbulent listening experience. The swirling Attwell guitars keep the listener in check, who are sitting on the edge of their seats in fear he will break in to "Your Biggest Mistake" at any given moment. His production under the moniker Bratwell has certainly aided the overall sound and feel of "Devil’s Eyes". There's tinted distortion throughout, with smooth bass, regurgitated with the soft, minimal percussion. Shoegaze is the genre most linked with PARLOUR, though the post-shoegaze term 'nu-gaze' would be more applicable. It's the stitching together of psychedelic pop, noise rock circa 1980s New York, and shoegaze circa Fender Jaguar. This is not to be dodged or forgotten about, but to be joined by the growing psychedelic artists in a waiting game - it's just a matter of time before PARLOUR, Attwell's production, and the 10s shoegaze artists blow up and dominate the alternative.
