Step aside Coldplay, Oasis and The Killers ...
They've sold more records than Coldplay, Oasis and The Killers combined. Well, at least in their native South Africa. I'm talking about The Parlotones, who made their U.S. debut last month with "Stardust Galaxies."
Now, with their homeland still on our minds in the wake of the World Cup (they played to about a billion folks at the opening), The Parlotones are on the road here and land at The Rave at 8 tonight with Blue October.
We're among the last in the western world to hear about this guitar pop quartet, which has spent the past 18 months acquainting Europe with "Stardust Galaxies," playing 1,000-plus-capacity venues across Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Russia, the U.K. and the Benelux countries.
To my ears, the band -- which is active in the fight against AIDS and malaria in South Africa -- sounds a bit like Sweden's Kent.
Here is a video for The Parlotones' "Beautiful" so you can hear for yourself.
Parlotones put on a great show last night, good to see them get some OMC love!
