After the remarkable success of their debut album ‘A Day In The Life’ released last year, The Parlophonics come back with a brand new song, based in the classic British pop and rock of the 60s and 70s.

From their curious & mysterious sound, to their thought-provoking lyricism, to the pure melodic payload delivered from production to performance, “Heaven Can Wait” shows how The Parlophonics are rapidly surging into their prime on the strengths of songwriting with substance, true commitment to excellence, and a genuine desire to entertain. 

1 – Hello Parlophonics, how is it going? We are excited to have you on our blog and we can’t wait to know more about you and your music. How would you describe yourself in a few words?
We are epic music fans – especially of the 60s and 70s.

2 – What inspired you to start playing and making music? What were your first steps in the music industry?
It all started with the Beatles for all of us. From there we expanded our universe by discovering more and more great music. So it started out very regular, playing in school bands, writing songs and advancing in the world of concerts.

3 – How was the first time you played music together? 
It sounds funny, especially now that we work on our second album, but we have never met in person. Chats, emails or calls is all we have and we exchange our ideas and songs over the internet. It works great.

4 – If you could choose any artists in the world, who would it be your ideal musician to collaborate with and why?
There are so many, but as a songwriter I admire a lot Paul Weller. He creates great songs and plays the guitar really well.

5 – Beside music, do you have any other hobbies or interests?
Well, my hobbies were cancelled for a while but as we are getting back to normal life I will start again scuba diving in the Mediterranean sea (where I partly grew up in Croatia). I am a master diver and started my training when I served in the German Armed Forces many years ago.

6 – Your latest release ‘Heaven Can Wait’ sounds amazing! Can you tell us more about the process of making this song?

The song is an old colab with Rae Jarvis (a German Songwriter and Singer). We wrote the song a very long time ago but have never released so far. I had supported Fernando and Denny Seiwell on the RAM ON (50th Anniversary) project, so I asked Denny if he would want to play on this tune. He liked it and so it came alive. Grammy winner Zack Ziskin did a fabulous mix of the song and so here we are.

7 – How would you describe the music that you typically create?

It is pure Alternative Rock with strong roots in Classic and Brit Rock. We cannot deny our heritage.

8 – Describe your favorite and least favorite part about being a musician.

Finishing a song is one of the greatest feelings ever but being stuck writing one is not so desirable.

9 – What are the next steps for your project? Anything exciting on the horizon?

Well, we have already recorded half of the new album, had it mixed by Zach and it really sounds great. We will be featured on a BADFINGER/Pete Ham Compilation coming soon, that features many great bands paying tribute to BADFINGER, a band that would have deserved much more lime light and appreciation.

Listen to Heaven Can Wait!
