Share their new single "Dream"
During the recording of last year’s release Kiku, The Parlor wrote a few songs that felt like outliers. Kiku was a tightly wound concept album about the couple’s multiple miscarriages, but “Dream” and “Dive” were both pointing toward the other side of that grief.
“Dream” held in it the realization of the couple’s tight bond, a glimpse of a blissful moment in an otherwise dark epoch. “Dive” was the fuck you. The feeling that it’s all too much. It became clear that the band was now free to write their own rules.
Maybe they’d change it all up. Become a heavy desert rock band. Or buy motorcycles. Shave their heads and sell everything. Before was before. Now is wide open.
Since releasing Kiku in April 2018, The Parlor toured until January 2019, when the band holed up in the studio to score a film. Filmmakers Jeremy Gardner and Christian Stella became friends
of the band while making their first film, a successful indie-horror zombie flick called The Battery, that was pieced together on a shoestring budget and ultimately found a worldwide audience.
The Parlor’s music was included in The Battery, and has been featured in their films ever
since. Gardner and Stella asked The Parlor to lend songs to their new film Something Else,
and to compose the score.
