The Parrots always know how to bring the party and on their latest single, ‘It’s Too Late To Go To Bed’ the duo ignite the spirit of their chaotic live shows.
As we edge closer to Autumn, we cannot wait for The Parrots new record, ‘Dos’ to be out in the world.

Talking about the track the band said:
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. Tom really helped us there, he made sense out of the chaotic mashup of influences that we brought into the studio. – Diego –
Also, 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. Also the Spanish music scene has been changing a lot in the last years and listening to a lot of new Spanish artists has helped us break down some walls and made us create music in a more free way. – Alex –
The new album ‘Dos’ is the follow up to the Madrid duo’s acclaimed 2016 debut ‘Los Niños Sin Miedo’ and shows the band taking an evolutionary step that finds them sounding stronger and more realized than ever before, from their original characteristics of stripped-down melodic garage rock to a fresh sonic perspective. Produced by Tom Furse (The Horrors) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts, Weezer, Panic! At The Disco, Temples), the Parrots find themselves experimenting with more modern production soundscapes and electronic grooves.
We absolutely can’t wait to see The Parrots perform a sweaty live show with tracks from ‘Dos.’ The band will be back in the UK in January 2022.
