Discovery: Alberta

Parlour is the latest track from Alberta, a bluesy group from the Seattle/Detroit/Chicago area in the United States.

By Jane Howkins

Parlour combines elements of soul, the blues, and old school rock ‘n’ roll together with modern elements to make something that sounds entirely new, straddling decades old and new. The time signature is something soul purists might particular recognise, and whilst the track sounds fairly simple at first, there’s a lot more going on than first meets the eye. Check Alberta out here and see what you think – they’re making an older style sound more modern, and that’s something to be commended!
