Parakeet – Shonen Hearts

I think it was on Monday last week when I saw Parakeet as support at the DIIV show and I was amazingly surprised how good they were. I mean the fuzzy guitars-genre is a really tough one and it’s not easy to stand out from others these days. That I had so much fun is due to the fact that Mariko Doi’s singing about Bananafishs and girls that want to eat meat. You know her as member from the band Yuck. Also in the band James Thomas from The History of Apple Pie and Jon Jackson.

Watch the title track “Shonen Hearts” of their forthcoming debut EP. Directed by Maria Cecilia. Grab yrslf a copy of the limited edition gold cassette over at Rough Trade. Digital copy at Bandcamp.
