The Parkers are a synth-pop trio from New York City. Combining classic rock roots of Led Zeppelin and The Runaways with the more sinister pop sound of Sky Ferreira and Lana Del Rey, sisters Anya and Kate Parker-Lentz partnered with drummer Henry Kane to create their grungy pop sound. The Parkers have played notable festivals and conferences such as CMJ Music Marathon (New York, NY), Launch Music Conference (Lancaster, PA), and Mondo NYC Music Festival and Conference.
War & Blues
Compelling lyrics, hard driving rhythms and melodic guitar playing rivaled by none. The pictures War & Blues paints in the listeners mind are filled with deep introspective contemplations of ones self. The music is moving and the dynamics created by these four musicians will take you on an emotional journey like no other band of recent times. Enjoy the ride.
Prog-Art/Rock quartet channels versatile musical cognizance into abstract sound transcending genres by incorporating diverse influences. PRALAYA has been the main focus of these four members for a couple of years now. Coming from all different musical backgrounds, this group of musical alchemists (Greg Telfeian; Jon Con; R. Whitley and Knales) unlocks the fibers of sonic matter and forges an Art-Rock style of uncanny proportion.
"New York art-rockers Changing Modes leap from one radically dissimilar style to another with gusto, guile and a tunefulness that won’t quit. Blending classical flourishes, punk energy, playful and clever lyrics that draw on 80s new wave and a ubiquitous element of surprise, every time you think you’ve got them figured out, they drop something new on you."
