The Parrots have shared their video for upcoming single “I Did Something Wrong”, and announced a range of U.K. shows supporting the Hooten Tennis Club at the Chameleon in Nottingham  for next month.

The new single will follow their (now sold-out) EP Weed For The Parrots“, and is the first time “I Did Something Wrong” will get a physical release after cementing itself as a live favourite. As well as the title track, the disc will feature a second as-yet-unnamed track.

“I Did Something Wrong” is out as a 7″ on 5th October via Shacklewell Records – it’s the debut release on the label, a collaborative imprint between the Dalston landmark and its pop-up record store Black Wax.




This song is from our forthcoming new EP “Weed for The Parrots” out in June on Burger RecordsMadrid band The Parrots might seem like party-hard, fun-loving guys but, underneath it all, there’s something darker going on. ‘I’m Not Alone’, the first track from their debut UK EP ‘Weed For The Parrots’, has them recalling “taking too many drugs in a bad moment of your life” over rumbling garage-punk, a subtle sadness chiming through frontman Diego Garcia’s weaving guitar lines. “I get up, I get up, I get up/And go far away from you,” he rasps, defiant and hurting.
“These songs were written at a time when alcohol and weed were present in my life every day in huge quantities,” Diego explains of the whole EP. “Everything was confusing and kind of out of control followed by terrible hangover days that were surrounded by dirt, drinking sangria and eating Chinese noodles.” Instead of wallowing in that rut, though, now The Parrots are lifting themselves out, painting smiles on their faces and delivering some of the most infectious sounds around.
