Album Human Performance. Human Performance Lyrics. I know exactly, where I was when I First saw you the way I see you now, through these eyes, waiting to retry.

Parquet Courts, also known as Parkay Quarts, is an American rock band from New York City. The band consists of Andrew Savage (vocals, guitar), Austin Brown (vocals, guitar, keyboard), Sean Yeaton (bass) and Max Savage (drums). The band released their debut album, American Specialties, as a limited cassette release, in 2011. The band's second studio album, Light Up Gold (2012), was initially released on Savage's Dull Tools label and later reissued on What's Your Rupture? in 2013.

Brooklyn art-rockers Parquet Courts have sometimes obscured their warmth under a cover of discord, challenging song structures and sardonic detachment. Their fifth album simplifies and purifies their sound to thrilling effect though. Whether they’re dovetailing or duelling, Andrew Savage and Austin Brown’s punchy riffs sublimate into the band’s poppiest hooks yet. There’s emotional engagement too, with Savage opening up his heartache and isolation on the bittersweet Human Performance and Berlin Got Blurry ’s collision of thrumming post-punk and surf guitar licks

Parquet Courts have announced a new album. The Brooklyn post-punk outfit will release Human Performance via Rough Trade on April 8. The album is inspired by the band’s own frustrations with mental and physical clutter, and an inability to make emotional connections, or at least the perception of it. That’s the album’s artwork above. I began to question my humanity, and if it was always as sincere as I thought, or if it was a performance, guitarist Andrew Savage says in a press release. I felt like a sort of malfunctioning apparatus

Human Performance is Parquet Courts at their most recognisable, with lead signer Andrew Savage’s exhausted, semi-spoken vocals paired with dazed throwback guitars reminiscent of early Wire. There’s still a sort of DIY charm rooted in the inconsistency of the 14 tracks presented – they’re catchy without being polished, yet creative without being experimental.
