A digestible chuck of summer goodness that we all need right now.

Viva España. That’s what we say. And it’s not because of the cheap booze or happy go lucky holidays, but because they may have just given birth to the next garage-psych heroes in the shape of The Parrots.
Tipped and revered by bands around the country, their debut record ‘Los Niños Sin Miedo’ is a woozy and hypnotic opening gambit that lays out exactly why these guys are a must-listen for those dry summer days. From the windmill chime of opener ‘Too High To Die’, it’s clear the gates are open – even if their range of styles is hidden under a ramshackle garage umbrella. Through the 60s pop punch of ‘Let’s Do It Again’, the deep psych wave of ‘A Thousand Ways’ and the rockabilly-swing of ‘EA Presley’, The Parrots’ number one priority is embracing the moment around them.
The standout cut is ‘James Gumb’, an adrenaline-induced descent into insanity that combines everything that makes this band so refreshing. A cocktail of influences, ‘Los Niños Sin Miedo’ captures the joys of youth. Over in a flash and right to the point, it’s a digestible chuck of summer goodness that we all need right now. Why walk through life when you can fly? Jamie Muir
