Saturday 11th December, Doors Open 8.30pm
Joan Knight Studio, Perth Theatre
Drawing from a plethora of influences from The Avalanches and Massive Attack to Super Furry Animals and The Beta Band, Perth’s very own Parliamo bring together witty social commentary with a distinctive songwriting approach very much their own.
The baggy, swaggering sound of the band and the often darkly humorous nature of the lyrics, stands in stark contrast with some of the subject matter, echoing the band’s propensity for laughing in lieu of crying. In a world of such turmoil and uncertainty, their new debut EP The Parliamo Manifesto aims to reconcile people with positivity through vibrant, energetic music, whilst providing a relatable commentary on the modern world and the inner workings of the minds of young people.
With a heady live reputation preceding them, this eagerly anticipated hometown show rounds off a year of real achievement for Parliamo. They have already been hailed as one of Scotland’s most exciting young prospects in a long time and their self-proclaimed brand of "underground pop" is already turning a lot of heads within the music industry.
Parliamo are: Jack Dailly (vocals), Finn Freeburn Morrison (guitar), Fraser Nicholson (bass), Mairi Sutherland (guitar, keys, vocals), Calum Simpson (guitar) and Andrew Haxton (drums).
