Tag: New Audio: Parrot Dream Releases an Atmospheric and Meditative New Single from Forthcoming Album

Parrot Dream is an up-and-coming shoegaze duo formed by the Santiago, Chile-born, Brooklyn-based Christina Hansen Appel (vocals, keys) and Gonzalo Guererro (guitar) back in 2013. After relocating to Brooklyn, the duo have begun to develop a reputation for sprawling and shimmering soundscapes — and as a result, they quickly amassed more than half a million streams on Spotifty.

Written and recorded over a two year period, the duo’s forthcoming full-length debut Light Goes is slated for an August 24, 2018 release through Good Eye Records, and the album’s material reportedly touches upon themes of connection, love, memory and clarity. The album’s latest single “Paradise & Prey” is a slow-burning and atmospheric track that manages to be elegiac yet uplifting, anthemic yet intimate as the song is centered around Appel’s shimmering synths, Guerrero’s tightly controlled guitar pyrotechnics, a soaring hook and Appel’s ethereal vocals — and while clearly seeming indebted to 4AD Records and the classic shoegaze sound, the Chilean-born, Brooklyn-based duo have a subtly modern take on it.
