Quick Questions With Robbers On Parole

Quick Questions With Robbers On Parole

Being heavily-influenced by both radio-friendly and niche-specific acts, the four band members decided that trying to blend them would be an interesting experiment, and so Robbers On Parole was created with the intent of making pop-like songs which mix different genres.

The creative focus is primarily on the lyrics & message of the songs and sometimes the band rearranges entire music sections so they can better serve as a backdrop to the lyrical meaning.

The band’s love for cinema, theatre and experimentation has further led to a desire for music videos, which can be viewed both as short movies with their own specific narrative and as a thematic extension of the music. Continue reading →
