The UMS Artist Spotlight: Parallelephants

Hailing from The Lone Star State, Parallelephants make their UMS debut this year. With a chill-wave sound cut from the same thread as bands like Washed Out and Toro Y Moi, throw in a hint of Frank Ocean and you have a perfect mix of rhythm and chill (R&C we will take credit for that). Parallelephants engage our audible experience with well constructed layers of synth goodness and cunning lyrics that just flow like a warm summer breeze. The band (along with labelmates Proz Taylor and Deezie Brown ) will be playing a slew of shows throughout our colorful state during this weekends UMS. Denver get ready as the Auction Sound Collective is about to turn you upside down. (The collective is holding a showcase tonight at Ft. Greene if you want to get an early start)
