Rolling in on an unbreakable motorik groove, The Parrots second album - Dos - starts very
much on the front foot. You Work All Day And Then You Die is a bold statement of intent, a
signpost at the side of the road that tells you straight about the futility of our modern lives
spent chained to the work station. As the chant-along chorus goes, “It’s hard to find some
peace of mind” - a line that feels like a reaction to the last year and half on planet Earth.
From You Work All Day And Then You Die’s relentless pulse to closer Romance’s end of the
night celebration of friendship and survival, Dos is an all consuming, life-affirming joyous
noise. Where The Parrots debut - Los Niños Sin Miedo - howled and rattled like the garage
bands that had inspired them in their formative years in Madrid, Dos was conceived by Diego
Garcia (guitar, vocals) and Alex de Lucas (bass) as a chance to showcase their wider
ambitions. That desire to expand the band’s sound led them to working with producer Tom
Furse from The Horrors.
