The Parlotones - Journey Through The Shadows
'Journey Through The Shadows' is the fourth studio album of South Africa's biggest selling pop/alternative band The Parlotones.
It has been 2 years since The Parlotones released their full length album 'Stardust Galaxies' which was fast achieving double platinum status in their home country and received massive attention in Europe.
The new album 'Journey Through The Shadows' includes 12 brand new tracks of their undeniable romantic and anthemic rock sound. Melody-minded arena-filling songs that transcend language and culture barriers.
The first single 'Save Your Best Bits', with its theme of not allowing negative things from the past to affect the good parts of your soul, and the celebratory 'I Am Alive' are about catharsis. They chase those moments of universal human experience when everyone in the room is uplifted by a shared emotion.
"My goal is to connect with people across the world, and I think the human condition is very similar regardless of where you are." Morbee says, "I think the theme of these songs is hope and that life is worth living regardless of its ups and downs.
That theme informs the album's title, 'Journey Through The Shadows', which Morbee explains, is a metaphor for the human experience. You're not given a guidebook or map at birth that guarantees the smoothest path," he says. "Ultimately, we all walk through with a candle that only allows us to see so far in front of ourselves. You never know what's around the corner, so it's an analogy for life."
