Biography

“The sounds - well heartbreaking would I guess be the best way to describe them ‘all ways’ in particular with its pining steel guitar motifs is so utterly crestfallen and down cast that open heart surgery without the administration of anaesthesia would you’d gather be a less painful experience. Poking daintily around the edges of Nick Cave’s ‘murder ballads. the imagery starkly vivid the melodies measured, enchanting and cast with a deeply engaging mellowing precision that makes a lie of their tender ages, the Parish Music Box operate from out of the same appealing terrains as the Tindersticks, Calexico and Lambchop, these four showcased cuts disturbingly delight and hurt with the same quiet grandeur as the criminally underrated Kelman whilst in terms of textures, tenderness and artistry are easily the best we’ve heard ruminating from the alt-country scene since Anna Kashfi’s near perfect “philokalia”.

These liberated love notes cocooned in a timeless song craft and sprinkled with imported Nashville nuances glide sumptuously the smoking slowly burning bruiser ‘bring it on’ smoulders with sapping sophistication nodding at intervals to the quieter and more resonant moments found on the Verve’s Urban Hymns whilst finding itself distilled and slyly honey combed within a lilting dust covered porch setting.
