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.
The 11-track album will also include the previous single ‘Maltido’ (featuring multi-million selling Spanish rap super star C. Tangana)
Rolling in on an unbreakable motorik groove, The Parrots second album starts very much on the front foot. ‘You Work All Day And Then You Die’ is 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. As the chant-along chorus goes, “It’s hard to find some peace of mind” - a line that feels like a reaction to the last year and half on planet Earth.
Where The Parrots’ debut howled and rattled like the garage bands that had inspired them in their formative years in Madrid, ‘Dos’ was conceived by Diego Garcia (guitar, vocals) and Alex de Lucas (bass) as a chance to showcase their wider ambitions. That desire to expand the band’s sound led them to working with producer Tom Furse from The Horrors.
