Parlovr Treats Fans To An Early Christmas Gift

Everyone loves free stuff and the guys from Parlovr (pronounced Parlour) know that.  So to quench everyone’s need for a freebie, the guys from Montreal are giving their fans and listeners a chance to download one of their latest singles, “Hell, Heaven” for free from their Facebook page. 

The single is part of a four song EP entitled Heaven/Hell/Big/Love that started off as more of a creative experiment.  The band started playing “Hell, Heaven”, which is about keyboardist/vocalist Alex Cooper’s childhood growing up in the middle east, last year while out on tour and decided that they wanted to get in the studio and create about three or four other tracks that basically had nothing to do with one another.  For Parlovr, it was a chance to just make some music that would require very little rehearsing or thought.  Other tracks on the EP include “Big Love”, a song about an ex-girlfriend of guitarist/vocalist Louis David Jackson, “Where is the Sun” and “Tehching Hsieh”.  The end result is a wonderful collection of songs that offer contrasting melodies and emotions. 

Parlovr will be touring the United States this fall, so keep an eye out for upcoming tour dates. You can preview “Hell, Heaven” HERE.

Parlovr Preview ‘Heaven/Hell’ on Stereogum!

Parlovr Canadian power trio Parlovr have been exploding onto the scene with their infectious indie pop since their self titled debut was released in 2008 on Dine Alone Records. Since then the boys have been working on their upcoming EP Heaven/Hell/Big/Love which will be released October 19th.

The idea for the EP was based around a song “Hell,Heaven” which the trio were playing continually at live shows. Heaven/Hell/Big/Love was created as 4 or 5 pieces that weren’t directly tied together in a specific theme and were just written without any rehearsal before studio time. The result is an EP split with “Hell,Heaven” which is based on “thoughts of a childhood spent in the middle east” and “Big Love” which is about a “girlfriend who has the ‘look of a man.” Along with the two title tracks are “Where is the Sun” and “Tehching Hsieh” which both add surrealism and romantic dreaminess to the EP.

You can preview “Hell,Heaven”  on Stereogum HERE and be sure to catch Parlovr at Pop Montreal October 2nd at Cabaret Just Pour Rire. The band will also soon be announcing US tour dates for this fall.
