There has never been a release like this from LOZ! It is his third release and it has been one of his most energetic yet. It’s the classic tale of the one who got away, but they have never done it with so much energy and power.
Rather than composing a piano ballad like many others have done to an exceptional standard, LOZ opts instead for a Synth-Rock approach, utilizing his higher range to provide the song with an infectious electricity that can be heard throughout its entirety.

There has been a long history of invalidation and misrepresentation of the Bi+ community, so I wanted to provide us with an uplifting anthem that celebrates who we are boldly and unapologetically,” Penelope added.

”Parlophone” is an amazing track, I never heard something so anthemic in my life. It’s amazing, it’s like a choir inside one woman, and I’m glad she put it on social media! The song has a great feel to it and it could easily be a theme song to a big movie.
