Hailing from Reykjavik, Iceland, Parachutes' soft sweeping melodies will whisk you into a wintry abyss of the calm and collected. A group of seven, they bring together sleepy vocals, lingering chimes, piano, sometimes trombone, light drums, and other cutesy toys, making a sound that will rock you like a low-swinging hammock. Last year the group released their first album, and this month they're making their first American tour. Cool and melty, Parachutes is soothing with substance, promising a fill for your empty ears. Electronic-inspired Solid Gold will open, offering a mix of tempos for the evening's harmonious show. With Greycoats. 18+.
