With some familiar faces...

London's a pretty exciting place to be right now.

After slumbering for a few years the city's indie scene is bustling with new talent with each musician seeming to belong to about three different bands.

Parakeet are no exception. The fast rising trio feature three members, with Yuck’s Mariko Doi and The History of Apple Pie’s James Thomas being joined by newly inducted guitarist Jon Jackson.

Second single 'Shonen Hearts' is causing no end of fuss, with fans swooning at their epic guitar fuzz and distorted vocals. As a treat, ClashMusic have been handed the video for a BRAND NEW TRACK from Parakeet.

'Campaign Against Torpidity' was originally recorded by No Wings Fins or Fuselage, but in Parakeet's hands it turns into something deep, unrelenting, powerful.

Backed by typically grainy, degraded visuals you can watch the video for 'Campaign Against Torpidity' below.
