I'd Walk 1,000 Miles For You

You Ain't No Picasso's Kentucky favs Parlour Boys recently got in contact with me and I'm very glad they did, this stuff is great. They're a blend of dance punk and straight up indie rock, and I'm very in love with the singer's voice. These songs are very accesible and could probably land them a big deal if they ended up in the right hands.

"Lovers" is a dance punk song with a heart, instead of the typical fair of ridiculous lyrics paired with a dance punk melody. The chorus sticks and the outro is amazing, I can't get it out of my head. "Sick Friends" is equally awesome, although it might not be as immediately affecting. The Joy Division-esque bassline intro gives you an early impression of the urgency in which the song moves along. And man these guys have got choruses down, I guarantee "tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight" will be stuck in your head for a while after this one.
