I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but this (very clever) video by Anglo-Spanish band Parlement for their single “Little Liar” (from their video Be Machinery, You Oughta Be In Pictures) seems like a not-so-gentle assessment of “blind love” from a bitter and jaded heart. It’s gritty both in style and in attitude.
“Come on out and tell our kids now they be brave
False illusions dancing on onesâ€™ desolate grave
On the hillside lonely lambs stand all amazed
Mind one day they will be out for us with lion rage”
– Little Liar
Parlement has an edgy, noisy sound with garage and punk influences, though not without its tastefully melodic guitar licks and tightly-knit musical composition. Stylistically, they’ve been compared to The Charlatans, Stone Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers and REM. The band features singer-songwriter Stefan Robert, drummer Carlos Arroniz, bassist Raü and lead guitarist Javi Bueno.
