Parquet Courts: The Best Band You Don’t Know About

Parquet Courts are back; Cue: their modest fan base having a collective freak out.

In their new music video “Wide Awake!” the Brooklyn rockers parade through a Mardi Gras celebration clad in matching purple suits, dipping beignets into coffee, and dancing with Elvis impersonators.

Fans of Parquet Courts will be surprised by the song’s new musical direction; the result of working with famed producer Danger Mouse. The new funky groove is a welcome addition to their sound, but I would be willing to bet that we’ll see some more traditional PQ songs when their next LP “Wide Awake!” arrives on streaming services May 18th.
