new music: parlor social combines time periods with its electrifying new single ‘it’s complicated(let go)’

June 28, 2016

Defining their genre as #Speakeasy soul and #Neo-Ragtime, Dessy Di Lauro and Ric’key Pageot of Parlor Social definitely live up to their titles. The infectious old-timey, Bebop rhythms, meshing smoothly with an accompanying R’n’B style backbone, transport the listener back in time while also maintaining a modern groove. Their most recent track ‘It’s Complicated(Let Go)’ falls directly under this description; its multilayered composition leaves the listener forced to move along with the fun, effervescent beat, keeping them on their toes with humorous ad lib and pop- culture reference. Check out ‘It’s Complicated (Let Go)’ below.
