NY-based dream-pop duo Parrot Dream are sharing a new single, The End. It’s third and final in the band’s 2021 song cycle following Automatic System and Red Circle. Listen to The End via YouTube below or you can stream it here.

The band shares, “The End was not in fact written in response to world events. We were experimenting with big dark synth sounds and wanted to create something minimal but deep & dynamic. The lyrics are essentially final thoughts as a chapter closes and one created world ends. We all move through several worlds during the day; worlds we create ourselves, worlds created by systemic repression, worlds of relationships, worlds created by the illusions of capitalism, to name a few. The world ending in this song is specifically a world built around two beings facing a fire and brimstone type of demise.”

Parrot Dream is the Brooklyn via Santiago, Chile duo of Christina Appel and Gonzalo Guerrero. Good Eye released their debut, ‘Light Goes,’ which dealt with themes of disconnected memory and loss as the partners grappled with their different senses of home.

The End is part of a set of material that they had planned on recording in a studio in 2020 and ended up recording in their home throughout the year. It’s also their first new work operating fully as a duo. 

More about Parrot Dream

Parrot Dream is a Chilean-North American dream pop foursome based in Brooklyn, New York. Formed at the end of 2013 in Santiago, Chile, the band now calls NYC home, performing regularly in Brooklyn and Manhattan between touring.

On August 24th, 2018 they released their debut full-length, ‘Light Goes,’ via Good Eye Records. The album was written over a span of two years and touches on themes of connection, love, memories and clarity.

The driving title track immediately pulls you into the lush world of ‘Light Goes’ as Appel’s hypnotic synths and wistful vocals meet Guerrero’s incendiary guitars sparking a fire that burns throughout the LP.

Oscillating between uplifting and elegiac, Parrot Dream draw you in to wade in deep, kaleidoscopic pools of sound as they build up towering, crystalline crescendos.
