Currently touring the UK with label-mates, The Last Dinner Party, rising Scouse meets Yorkshire four-piece release their new single, ‘Judgement Day’.
After the soaring success of their debut single ‘Norwegian Wood’ back in July, Picture Parlour return with a sequel to the self-detonation of the first song, as they finally give in to love. We’re taken on a journey of how it feels to be swept off our feet, whilst still retaining the playful notions of youth, opening the internal battles we face upon new, nail-biting feelings.
Together, the team explores the idea of feeling on top of the world and being proud to jump up on stage and express their hidden thoughts in a crowded room. Sort of like a more polished version of Mel and Madge in Benidorm season 2, when he gets down on one knee after his beautiful ‘Lonely Girl’ rendition.

Commenting on the single, Katherine Parlour states, “‘Judgement Day’ is a love letter. It’s being knocked off your feet by someone you never expected to meet and surrendering to that all-consuming feeling. It’s a dramatic statement that at the end of time, on judgement day, you want to stand hand in hand with your lover.”
