Parhelia's sound and talent is uncomparable to any instrumental post-rock group i have heard yet. Their guitars compliment each other so well and mesh to form a very relaxing and hypnotic sound that is impossible to forget. The bass lines are catchy and keep you on your toes and Parhelia's sound is brought together perfectly with the creative and uplifting drum beats. This band is definitely a personal favorite and a "must hear". Give them a listen. I promise you wont be dissappointed.
