Parlor Walls have released their debut LP Opposites early this year after their EP Cut of 2016. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York the three piece with frontwoman Alyse Lamb is much more likely to play in a backstreet art venue than in the big arenas of the world.

An aggressive atmosphere that is full of punk with a hammering bass and jazzy connections in the song Birthday, Lamb repeats verses again and again.

everything, everything
you wanted me
you wanted my things
you wanted everything
everything, everything
you wanted me
you wanted my things 

Kate Mahonty’s saxophone provides an added texture simultaneously haunting and beautiful and absolutely blood-curdling. Shrill trills and shrieking experimentations add, at times, a curious prod to an already heightened mood, otherwise evoking the full-on voice of a banshee. Both throbbing drums and brooding synth are covered by Chris Mulligan, who impressively is more able to play both seamlessly. ”

An extraordinary, fascinating and disturbing album.
