The Parrots

The Parrots

Spain is currently a hot bed of incredible musical talent, and The Parrots are just one in a long line of insanely talented young bands. Yet The Parrots languid garage rock stylings really strike a chord with us.

Right now Spain seems to a veritable hot bed of incredible new music, first there was Hinds, MOURN and more recently Nuria Graham. All of who are producing music, which is transcending their tender years, now step forward The Parrots. They recently came to my attention following a number of incredible appearances across the US playing the likes of SXSW and the incomparable Burgerama. They also recently released a split single with fellow Madrid band Hinds.

This Spanish trio are rightly setting the world alight with their short sharp hits of blustery garage rock. With a new EP on the horizon titled Weed For The Parrots, its set to be an exciting year for The Parrots. As said EP comes to life the rather apt Terror tears through the speakers. At just shy of a minute and a half, it’s the perfect introduction to this crazy bunch of guys.

White Fang is a slightly more languid affair, yet still as brilliant, their influences are easily sought. With such a vibrant garage scene right now The Parrots could quite easily have been lost in the melee yet there is something more exciting about this trio.

This is epitomised in the incredible All My Loving, a rather racy number filled with hefty guitars and played at a rip snorting pace. As Diego constantly chants “All My Loving” I can’t wait to see where these guys go from here, as they close out their EP with the rather lo-fi Wild.

The Parrots have covered a lot of ground with this short EP, yet I’m sure they still have even more to offer. Whilst it’d be easy to liken them to so many others, The Parrots are already proving that they’re pretty versatile with their sound. They’re definitely a band that is soon going to BE implanting themselves into many people’s heads, especially with tracks as strong as All My Loving.
