Ballynahinch, County Down
Described by BBC ATL as 'Jangly rock and roll with attitude', County Down band Parapa Palace have so far released their self titled debut E.P on 22nd April 2015 followed by the critically acclaimed double single "Myopic/Visions" on 14th August 2015. Both are available to download via the bands bandcamp page.
Building a reputation for their intense and engrossing live shows, the Northern Irish rockers are going from strength to strength.
Since their live debut at The Menagerie Belfast in February 2015, the band have played several high profile shows including Belfast Voodoo, The Empire Music Hall and in June performed an in-store gig in HMV Belfast. 2016 has so far seen the band back in the studio and working on new material, as well as playing showcase shows in McHugh's basement and Dublin's Bello Bar.
New single 'Cruel Hands' was released on 26th May 2016 and is now available to download/stream from all major digital music services.
'Hopefully Parapa Palace continue to provide their lush alt rock for a long time to come' - Melanie Brehaut- chordblossom.com
'Melancholic indie rock that verges on spaced-out psychedelia, perhaps taking Trompe Le Monde era Pixies as inspiration. Dripping in attitude and creativity' - BBC ATL
"With a well thought-out and distinctly individual style, catchy hooks and compelling vocals this is definitely a band I’d love to hear more from" LAURA CALDWELL- pastiebap.com
