One of the surprises of 2013 was the smash hit from Parmalee.
Carolina really took off. It kind of fluttered along in the beginning, but by the end of the year the song was one of the biggest hits of the entire year. It reached the top spot on the charts and the guys had officially arrived in the country world.
These country rockers are looking to keep the momentum going this year with another single. Check it out and see what you think.
Close Your Eyes – Parmalee
These guys have a distinct style. They kind of remind me of Little Texas if you remember those guys from about 20-25 years. The whole thing for Little Texas was to bring the style of ’80s rock bands to country music and they really pulled it off.
Parmalee is the modern day country rock band. They have a unique sound that you won’t really find in country music. They aren’t hard rockers, but more of a melodic band with really catchy songs.
The lyrics aren’t uncovering anything new in this one, but they’re pretty solid. It’s about a guy that’s going to make his move to kiss the girl. He’s going to rock her world and he’s suggesting that she closes her eyes for what’s coming.
It’s a love song in the form of what you’d hear from a rock band. It’s catchy and I think it’ll be another solid hit.
