Parlour Boys are Kentucky natives and haven't even been around a full year, but they have a new EP out and they continue the dance/punk/new wave feel of bands like their Kentucky counterparts, VHS or Beta. It might be tough for them hailing from the same state and having a sound so close to another fairly successful native band, but then again, it may only help them. They're young and I'm sure their sound will mature and evolve, but they're off to a great start.
It's has been reported that their EP is floating around some major record labels. Parlour Boys'MySpace.
