(SXSW 2017 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2248: The Parrots

By on Friday, 16th December 2016 at 6:00 pm

Spanish slacker rock trio The Parrots have just released the new video for ‘A Thousand Ways’, the current single from their debut LP ‘Los Niños Sin Miedo’, which our Adam reviewed. The album is out now on Heavenly Recordings. Filmed by director Pablo Amores, the video is at once heavily stylised and deliberately artless, much like the song itself. It is captioned on YouTube with the following expository quote:

There’s a key moment in your teenage years when the forbidden, the temptations and the unknown start to attract you, and you avoid responsibilities and complex questions. This is the moment when, along with your friends, childhood dies. This is the moment upon which A Thousand Ways is built.

The video for ‘A Thousand Ways’ premiered Wednesday on Brooklyn Vegan, along with the announcement that The Parrots will play at New York City’s Shea Stadium on the 10th of March. That show comes just before the Madrid rockers are scheduled to appear in Austin for SXSW 2017.
