Originally from Washington state, now from Portland, Parenthetical Girls is an experimental rock, indie pop band that currently consists of multi-talented musicians like Zac Pennington, Rachael Jensen, Jherek Bischoff, Freddy Ruppert, and Eddy Crichton.
They’ve been receiving a bunch of recent coverage because there’s a new video for their song, The Pornographer, but I’m not too interested in that song as much as I am in Careful Who You Dance With. Both songs are on the latest EP, Privilege, Pt. III: Mend & Make Do.
Careful Who You Dance With is straight 80’s. The first time I heard the track, I had to double-check that (1) it was actually released last week and (2) that it was actually the track and not some flub where it was replaced from some other track. I guess that initial reaction made an impression on me and why I’m posting it.
