King Parrot today unleash their first new music since 2017, with “Banished, Flawed Then Docile” being lifted from the upcoming four-track E.P Holed Up In The Lair.
It is a typical dose of frenetic madness from King Parrot and one is sure to creep into the live setlist when touring life kicks back into gear.
“All of the tracks on the E.P were written a few years ago,” revealed frontman Matt Young. “We had a bit of time off between a US tour and a Europe tour. We had a couple of weeks to kill and we finished the tour and went and stayed in Florida and had a little holiday for a week and then we went down to Louisiana and visited Phillip and Kate who run Housecore and asked them if we could go in do some recording and make the most of our time while we were there and do stuff in the studio. We hung out with them and set out different ideas to try and write and record four tracks in the time that we had, just as a project to write and record them as good as we could and play it mostly live to give it that live kind of feel. I think that’s what the tracks have. “Banished, Flawed Then Docile was probably the most gruesome thing I could think of at the time (laughs). The whole thing was a good exercise in trying to write and record as quickly as possible and do it as well as we possibly could.”
In the full interview, Matt talks about the diversity of each track musically, small musical nuances that often get lost in translation, experimenting with music, the limited-edition merchandise for the E.P, the joys of fatherhood and the possibility of a future King Parrot love song, the next music video that could surprise long time fans of the band and more.
