TUNE Parliamo - Weekend
‘Weekend’ is the debut single from Perth teenagers Parliamo, out 2nd March 2018. Having already generated interest at BBC Scotland with previous demos and some exhilarating local live shows, the band are stepping up with this ode to the “uncertainly as well as the passion of being young” explains 17 year old (schoolboy) vocalist Jack Dailly. “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”
The band fuse a revival of rock 'n' roll guitar music with pop melodies alike to the 60's whilst carrying a punk energy and huge echoey drums of 80's dance music, Parliamo represent an exciting take on underground pop. Whilst building a live following and a recognition for putting on energetic and memorable live performances, Parliamo play anthems by the youth, for the youth. Coming from the songwriting compound of catchy jangling guitar riffs and melodies from 18-year-old Finn Freeburn Morrison and the street poetry of frontman Jack Dailly, who, citing lyrical influences such as John Cooper Clarke and Mike Skinner, pens lyrics about growing up and being immersed in the life and culture of the defiant youth of modern Scotland. The line up is completed by Fraser Nicholson (bass), Calum Simpson (guitar) and Ben France (drums). The band say their influences include The Stone Roses, The Smiths, Fatboy Slim and Oakzy B amongst others.
