During the heatwave The Parrots released ‘Girl,’ and, now the band mark the end of summer with a brand new track, ‘My Love Is Real.’
The new single was recorded at the band’s home studio and produced by Tom Furse of The Horrors.
Talking about ‘My Love Is Real’, the band said:
“We wanted to make a rock n roll ballad, a dreamy love song that transported to high school dances but also to dark sketchy bars with lonely clients. With this in mind we recorded the song at home and sent it to Tom Furse, he completely got the vibe and helped us create the atmosphere we imagined.”
Tom Furse added:
“Joe Meek was my point of reference with ‘My Love Is Real’ – I used his guidance via Ouija board for a point of balance between lo-fi scuzz and the naive pop stylings of the song – which ended up with doing things like using the sounds of surf in the drums and doing crazy piano improvisations in the wrong key which I would speed up in the tape machine to get it in tune. My basic tenant was – ‘what would Joe do?”
The track is accompanied by a video, again directed by Hector Herce, which loosely follows on from the previous video he worked on with the band, ‘Girl’.

Talking about the video, driector Hector said:
“My Love Is Real is set in imaginary 90’s. It is a brother video of ‘Girl’, previous single of The Parrots and follows the adventures of a loving trio. It is more metaphorical than narrative and more aesthetic than ethical. Codes that speak of romantic and human relations are hidden on its images.”
The band are currently in the process of writing a new album, the follow up to their debut album, ‘Los Niños Sin Miedo’, which was released in August of 2016 and was critically acclaimed.
This Autumn the band take their enthralling, ramshackle live show across the UK, with support from Creatures.
