Parenthetical Girls are a 4 piece Band from Portland, whose unique (music) aim is to make You cry. - At least that's what i believe in. - I mean, Safe as Houses never fails in its everlasting nostalgic tone, a smart delicate song-writing wavering indie pop and twee music together, well mixing electronic instrumentation and glockenspiel peal. It seems to me like a beautiful series of lullabies for a bucolic funeral, with a vision of the beloved dead's spirit flying to the sky accompanied by aseual angels broken in pain. Think of Radiohead, Sigur Ros and Belle and Sebastian, Mùm, - Parenthetical Girls' Music is equally accessible and intriguing, yet too much elegant for majors. The Weigh She Fell Under and Oh Daughter/Disaster are pure pearls, strong enough to become Their classics, - with singer's voice at its top nervous, delicate falsetto over stunning lyrics of destruction and innocence.. In some days They'll tour italy, and then a gig in rome, - i guess i'll be right sitted in front of the stage, hypnotized and dreamy. - The whole album is like an excellent story-teller.
Parenthetical Girls sono un quartetto di Portland, il cui unico scopo (musicale) è quello di farVi piangere. - Almeno questo è quello di cui sono convinto. - Mi spiego, Safe as Houses non allenta mai il tono sempiterno nostalgico che tiene, un brillante delicato song-writing che tesse insieme indie pop e twee music, ben mixando strumentazione elettronica e scampanellio glockenspiel. Mi sembra come una serie di cantilene/filastrocche per un bucolico funerale, con una visione dello spirito del morto che vola al cielo, accompagnato da angeli asessuati rotti nel dolore. Pensate ai Radiohead, Sigur Ros and Belle and Sebastian, Mùm, - la Musica dei Parenthetical Girls è ugualmente accessibile e intrigante, per quanto troppo elegante per le major. The Weigh She Fell Under e Oh Daughter/Disaster sono due perle perfette, forti abbastanza per diventare i Loro classici, - con la voce del cantante al top del nervoso, in falsetto delicato sopra testi di distruzione e innocenza.. Sono in tour in italia, e presto faranno una data a roma, - immagino sarò in prima fila, seduto a terra, ipnotizzato e sognante. - L'intero album è come un eccellente raccontastorie.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
