Hear Madrid Garage-Punk Gang The Parrots' Defiant, Rumbling New Track 'I'm Not Alone'

Madrid gang 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.

Disclosure Tease New Album With Thunderous New Single 'Bang That' - Track Review

After the release of their surprise million-selling Number One album ‘Settle’, Surrey duo Disclosure took off into the dance-pop stratosphere, scoring hit singles, appearances at every international festival worth its salt and a 2013 Grammy nomination for Best Dance Album. Two years later, the Lawrence brothers are back with a banger. ‘Bang That’ (and it’s no misleading title) pushes their ravey sonics into colder, lustier territory here, stripping back the hyperactive hooks of fan favourites like 'White Noise' for a more minimalist, beat-driven five minutes of rave pressure.

19 Brand New Bands You Need To Hear (May 1, 2015) - Playlist

Kicking off this week’s Buzz playlist of breaking/unknown bands we love are the great Coneheads, from north-west Indiana. Last year’s ‘Canadian Cone’ tape is an absolute gem, and certainly one of the best lowkey north American releases I’ve heard in years, right up there with the early stuff from Merchandise, Sheer Mag and Milk Music. Much like that last band, they’re pretty press shy.
