BURSTING out of Perth with an irrepressible energy and rock’n’roll spirit, Parliamo have unveiled their massive debut single ‘Weekend’.
The latest exciting outfit to thrust themselves onto our radar, the young five-piece pen defiant anthems about growing up and being immersed Scotland’s modern day youth; a feeling fuelled by punky rebellion and an underlying optimism. Now with a growing army of followers behind them after a series of raucous local live shows, the band have taken their first foray into fully-fledged recorded material with the release of ‘Weekend’.
Driven by pounding drums and earworm melodies, the track is an anthem of youth that takes you back to Britpop with vocalist Jack Dailly explaining: “It’s about the ups and down that come with losing yourself as you try to find yourself in your teenage years, all the while keeping the undying optimism that everything is going to be okay”. A raucous combination of jangly guitars, poppy choruses, 60s punk energy and youthful perspective, it’s a rip-roaring start from a band who are only starting to make their mark.
Parliamo have a number of live dates lined up including a show at Glasgow’s Broadcast this Friday (9 March).
