Parlour Boys


The Parlour Boys are a dance-pop band from Lexington Kentucky. Not surprisingly I first heard about them from the wonderful You Ain’t No Picasso, a fellow Lexington Resident. What I really love about this band is the energy they bring to every song. They’re currently in the last stages of signing a record contract and may be recording a full length album as soon as April (I’m keeping my fingers crossed.)

MP3: Parlour Boys- Sick Friends

I’m one of those people that have the annoying habit of trying to figure out what songs “mean.” Sick friends is hard to figure out, for one thing they switch the genders of the pronouns during the song. The lyrics are hard to decipher in general, I don’t know what “sick friends and better halves, tempt our tongues were left for dead” means let me know if you do. In any case my bewilderment hasn’t hindered my enjoyment of the song at all, in fact it’s my favorite of the three. Check out especially the awesome “Wha-oh” chorus around 2:50.

I saw the Parlour Boys a few months ago at the CMJ and it was the best show I witnessed all week. If any of you are lucky enough to live around Kentucky (never though I’d write that) definitely check out one of their upcoming shows:
