The Spanish wave of blissfully ramshackle garage-rock which crested a few years ago with The Parrots and Hinds looks set to deliver a second surge of goods in 2018. ‘Soy Peor’, a new one-off single from the former, is a reliably chaotic cover of Bad Bunny, a current behemoth of Spanish hip-hop. The track is the last recorded with the original lineup following the departure of Larry Balboa, and signals a comeback in the near future as the now 2-piece start work on a followup to Los Niños Sin Miedo.
Matching acoustic guitars with scattered percussion and showing off a flow unmatched elsewhere in the ranks of indie, it’s a gleeful genre-bend destined to soundtrack late night drinking sessions and bring Bad Bunny into British waters. ¡Viva The Parrots!
