Parlour Steps – The Hidden Names (Review)

After seeing Parlour Steps do a small session for Bands Undone in November.
Decided to listen the album The Hidden Names. Thanks to the people at Killbeat Music.
Got the CD on hand and find out how great this band is.

Here is a description from Killbeat.
The keen intelligence, the ambitious ideas, the pride in tackling heady, cerebral concepts that has characterized the band from Vancouver, British Columbia, from the get-go remain intact. But a newfound musical confidence gives a carefree flow to the band’s music, with a vivacious presence and palpable warmth.

Listening to this album, I really enjoyed their sound which has that happy indie pop rock sound.
They have that British Columbia sunny cheery pop feeling in tracks like As the World Turned Out, Soft Lies
While catchy pop tunes in Sleeping City, Little Pieces and Mad Mad Day.

This is such a great album, go out and get it.
Hopefully 2010 will be a great year for Parlour Steps.

  • As The World Turned Out
