The Parlotones are Kahn Morbee, Neil Pauw and brothers Glen and Paul Hodgson. They formed over 10 years ago and achieved massive success in their home country of South Africa.

They have also released two live albums, Unplugged (2008) and Live Design (2010).

 Radiocontrolledrobot and Stardust Galaxies both won a South African Music Award (SAMA) for“Best Rock Album”.When The Parlotones originally formed they were described an Alternative band, and were heavily influenced by British bands like The Cure, The Smiths and newer bands like Radiohead and Coldplay. Later on they were called Indie, Rock and Pop.

 The band has toured internationally since 2007, spending months on the road in the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and North America.  They have also toured in South America, Canada, Australia, Japan and Russia. They have toured with Coldplay, Starsailor, Snow Patrol and Blue October.  They have been involved with Earth Hour, Live Earth, Nelson Mandela’s 46664, Rhino Force, United Against Malaria and in 2012 they climbed Mt Kilamanjaro as part of gesture to end violence against women and children in Africa.

The band blended three wines during 2009 and 2010 named after some of their most popular songs: “Giant Mistake”, “Push Me to the Floor” and “We Call This Dancing”. In 2012 the band performed a rock opera called Dragonflies and Astronauts which was broadcast live around the world in 3D via DIRECT TV and in 2D live on Facebook.
