Modern psychedelic melodic rock, post-punk. Beatles vibe.


The Parlez are Dermot Walsh and Neil Walsh from Dublin, Ireland. Every instrument, on every song is played, recorded and produced by the two brothers. There may be an abundance of harmony in the siblings' sixties influenced musical output, but that's where the harmony between Dermot and Neil ends.

When a number of attempts to keep a band together between the two music loving brothers all similarly ended in a room filled with argument, Dermot and Neil finally agreed on one thing - that if they were going to make music together they would need a whole lot of space between them. And so it was agreed that they would work on the songs separately - each making their contribution from studios some 70 miles apart.

The result of this unusual arrangement was that for the first time in many years of working together, the Walsh brothers at last had the momentum to produce an album's worth of songs. Titled "Glisten", The Parlez debut album was released in August 2012 to great acclaim by many reviewers.

Their music caught the attention of the boutique vinyl revivalists Feedbands who were keen to introduce The Parlez music to an audience they knew would connect with the classic rock-pop tunes, crisp guitars and vintage synth sounds. The rich melodic heritage in the music was clear, and marrying these qualities to the vinyl format delivered Feedbands with their best received record to date.

Dermot and Neil continue to work at separate studios, writing and recording tracks for the follow up to Glisten which will be released in 2015. Dermot performs lead vocal on all tracks, all instrumentation is shared between the two.
