Parakeet have been a hidden, shrouded, lingering figure for some time now.
A duo, the band hinges on Mariko Doi (YUCK) and James Llewellyn Thomas (The History of Apple Pie) with their debut seven inch emerging in 2012.
Since then, Parkeet have released an EP - the sublime 'Stolen Hearts' - before preparing a Japanese only compilation. As ever, our Japanese friends are streets ahead...
Hooking up with the always-on-point Marshall Teller imprint, Parakeet are now set to release new EP 'Pink Noise' on cassette later this month.
Ahead of this, Clash can preview new cut 'Running And Running'. An effortlessly sweet pop confection, it opens with chiming acoustic guitars before sliding into reverb soaked vocals.
A joyous, uplifting piece, it sits apart from the pair's day jobs but also nods to their back catalogue - Parakeet are rapidly flowering into something quite special.
Listen to it now.
