The Parrots

HAILING from Madrid, The Parrots create a messy bold brand of rock n roll, echoing the likes of Palma Violets and The Fat White Family.

With a distinctively retro sound, somewhat clunky in nature, you're sure The Parrots will be a particularly exciting band live. Their debut EP ‘Weed for The Parrots’ showcases a dangerously carefree approach,

The opening track, ‘Terror’ lasts just over a minute. With a rumbling sound and a toe tapping rhythm, accompanied by a set of shrieks providing a rather enjoyable snapshot of what this band stand for - no nonsense. Second track, ‘White Fang’ continues the plug-in and play style that this garage punk trio encompass. ‘White Fang’ and  ‘I’m Not Alone’ showcase jangly guitar lines weaving around the ferocious vocalism whilst ‘Wild’ offers a low level, distorted fuzz, ambling along as though it belongs in an advert for whisky.

A more slowed down, somewhat Western sound is achieved whilst retaining the punk style in more sombre track ‘To The People Who Showed Me Their Love While I Was Here’. With a cover of The Almighty Defenders’ ‘All My Loving’, with its back and forth structure and rough round the edges sound, being a welcome addition to a thoroughly enjoyable EP.

For the fans of bands like Twin Peaks and The Orwells, The Parrots are must for you to check out. Fun, and infectious, The Parrots are bound to be filling sweaty rooms all over the place in no time at all. Get your hands on their Debut EP out 22nd June on 10” Vinyl via Luv Luv Luv Records and Cassette tape via Burger Records.
