Although the band formed in Brooklyn, Parquet Courts frontman Austin Savage is indelibly linked with his hometown of Denton. While Savage started a number of fan favorite groups in DFW, Parquet Courts has been his most enduring project yet. The group’s latest release, Wide Awake, dropped in March to much acclaim. Grammy Award-winning producer Danger Mouse produced what could be the band’s catchiest album to date. Featuring funky beats and Savage’s characteristically raw vocal delivery, Parquet Courts is one of the coolest bands to come out of DFW, and its current seems to be taking its further than ever. Last year, Savage was up for a Grammy Award for the cover art on 2016’s Human Performance, and the band’s collaboration with Italian composer Daniele Luppi on last year’s Milano was also met with critical acclaim. It seems like 2018 is Parquet Court’s year. That’s great news for longtime fans but even better news for recent enthusiasts. Now’s your chance to hop on the bandwagon.
