With its late-’80s alt-rock funk groove, seductive croon, and full-platter sax and trumpet brass attack, “Never Let ‘Em Hold Ya Back” speaks to that tenacity, and as the latest track off Parlour Bells’ forthcoming LP Waylaid in the Melée, due later this year, it represents not only a new era for the project, but also a recharged energy.” — Michael Marotta, Vanyaland

“Parlour Bells…a great pick to open for Culture Club and I recommend Live Nation consider the glam demi-gods provide support for any Bowie, Morrissey or Jane’s Addiction shows that come along.” — Jed Gottlieb, The Boston Herald
