The Parlor: “Dive”

When Jen O’Connor and her partner Eric Krans settled in a nineteenth century farmhouse near Albany, it seemed fitting to name themselves after one of the property’s most prized rooms, The Parlor. And in their eighth year of releasing music together, this husband-wife multi-instrumentalist duo continues to create in their namesake, with gentle indie-folk and art-pop that embodies the complexity of human experience.

The naturalistic-but-synthetic, antiquated-yet-modern intimacy of The Parlor has earned them touring spots with The Lumineers, Deer Tick, Lucius, Sharon Van Etten, and even Neil Young and Willie Nelson. Last Friday The Parlor went a synth-heavy direction on “Dive”, the second of two singles this year and a Phantogram-esque dream pop tune that’ll make you want to sink down and float away all at once.
