House & Parish has only been a band since 2006, yet its members have already more than cut their teeth in acts such as Texas Is The Reason, The Promise Ring, The Love Scene and The Gloria Record. “One, One-Thousand” is their debut EP and just like the slick and minimalist artwork, their songs are all in good taste. With a shoegazer mindset firmly in place, they drop a mature and lush pop album that will have you nodding along in no time. Especially on tracks like “This Curse” and “Standardesque”, House & Parish has my full attention. If that’s any indication of what we’re gonna hear on their first full-length, then you can already consider me a fan!
