Close Your Eyes-Parmalee (Stoney Creek)

Yes, I fully underestimated the appeal and staying power of their first single. “Carolina” has tallied 650k digital units and is still #10 on the sales list as I write this. Because it was a solid radio single, this’ll get a lot of adds in coming weeks and is practically guaranteed to get to the middle of the airplay charts by residual momentum alone. I don’t hear anything compelling about it, though. Not yet, anyway, and I’m five spins into it.
