The Parlotones (South Africa)

This week featuring South Africa


I came across this band on youtube and was impressed by their unique sound.  The bands second album “radiocontrolledrobot” released in 2005 won Best Rock Album in South Africa.  “A World Next to Yours” was released in 2007 and “Stardust Galaxies” in 2009.  The band has a new album slated for a 2012 release.  The Parlotones have won many awards in South Africa and were the support act for the “Coldplay” tour.  The video above is for the single “Overexposed” from their second album and is one of the coolest videos I’ve seen.
