South Africa’s hottest exports The Parlotones bring their arsenal of electrifying indie for a full-out invasion of London’s legendary Scala.
The Parlotones kicked of their professional career in 2003 rising to the forefront of South African music by 2006 when they signed a European license deal on the back of their debut single beautiful being used in a Fujifilm commercial.
Since then The Parlotones have become the biggest selling band in South Africa and have delivered over 200 shows in 2008 across SA, UK and Europe with key performances including Live Earth, Coke Fest and V Fest.
Audiences watching The Parlotones are swept up in a whirlwind of energy and rock orchestrated by front man Kahn Morbee. Not adverse to experimentation, the band merges innovative and authentic ideas into a comprehensive sound, which lends itself to mammoth live performances, the likes of which audiences have rarely seen.
“The Parlotones are a supremely good band” – Tourdates.co.uk
“The Parlotones are the worlds new anthemic indie group sweeping audiences away every where they play” – NME
Support comes from feisty electro-pop-rockers Minus IQ and local London lads The Philbys.
