Tina Parol Videos
Tina Parol likes to rock.
She makes delightfully catchy pop with a serious dose of rock n' roll swagger on her debut EP, Bite My Tongue. It's that edge that makes Tina's music so sharp and unique. Looking at her playlist though, the rock and roll leanings are not a surprise!
Tina's got a real appreciation for classic rock and modern alt rock, and it shows on her iTunes. She shared her playlist with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino in this exclusive interview. Check it out below and get Bite My Tongue now!
2. Led Zeppelin
4. The Clash
5. The Police
I grew up on everything from Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin to Blondie and The Clash to the Police. I'm a big, big classic rock fan. That's my shit.
6. Green Day
8. Foo Fighters
My taste in rock spans all the way to Green Day, Garbage, Foo Fighters and all of that stuff. I definitely listen to a lot of rock, but I have a big love of reggae. I think that's where my rhythmic edge comes into play. My music definitely has a big pop rock sound with a little reggae sprinkled on top—sometimes it's just the way I pronounce something or a lyric. I try to incorporate that because it makes me happy.
I like the new Muse record a lot. I think they're really cool.
10. Black Eyed Peas
I've been listening to a lot of Black Eyed Peas because they're just so fun. It makes me feel very L.A. I'm so New York, and in New York, I listen to dark shit—back in my element. Will.i.am's the shit though!
