Fixtures of the local rock scene for a number of years now, The Parlotones have been given little mention on The Muso to date. That now changes with the news that the band has signed to Universal and is set to focus all it’s energy on breaking into the UK music scene. Powerzone has an article up looking at exactly what this entails in more detail and is certainly worth the read.
Regardless of what you make of their music, a worldwide major label deal is a massive coup for any local band. We wish the guys everything of the best on what is sure to be a demanding road. Most of all we hope that through their success the eyes of the world turn to South Africa, eager for more.
