Band: THE PARROTS
Who: Pretty wacky, but equally exciting duo,
Diego García and Alex de Lucas, from Spain.
The Parrots about the longpayer: “Most of the record was written before
the lockdown but that unexpected pause in all of our lives made us rethink
some of it and finish bits off in a different way… Even though garage rock is
kind of the core of all our influences, in the last few years we’ve been listening
to lots of stuff that we’d kind of relegated to a second position.
We rediscovered a lot of artists that we listened back when we first fell in love
with music – bands like LCD Soundsystem and Gang of Four, lots of mutant disco.
And because we’ve always loved hip hop, we followed a different approach to putting
songs together, using samples and sampling ourselves a lot. Beastie Boys, ESG, Devo,
Los Zombies (the Spanish band) were all a very big influence on the tone of the record.”
New single: YOU WORK ALL DAY AND THEN YOU DIE
The Parrots: “It’s a bold statement of intent, a signpost at the side of the road that tells
you straight about the futility of our modern lives spent chained to the work station.”
From Spanish garage fun to sharp-cutting rock ‘n’ roll.
The Parrots are dead! Long live the Parrots!
Open the gates…
