The video stars Kai Pelton, a co-facilitator of the Trans-Generational Theatre Project (more here), with the song reflecting on challenges within relationships between parent and child, and how often much remains uncommunicated and unresolved in these relationships. In turn, the video explores a range of experiences dealing with grief, loss and the struggles connected to these types of relationships.
The dazzling, sprawling sonic atmospheres conjured by Brooklyn-based band ParrotDream envelop and spur the dreamer in all of us. Formed by Christina Hansen Appel (vocals, keys) and Gonzalo Guerrero (guitar) in Santiago, Chile in 2013, the duo relocated to Brooklyn, NY and quickly began making strides amassing more than half a million streams on Spotify.
This time would go on to inspire the material that comprises ParrotDream’s debut full-length, Light Goes. Signing to Good Eye Records, the LP saw release digitally and on vinyl, including a limited Blood Red color run, on August 24th, 2018.
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, ParrotDream draw you in to wade in deep, kaleidoscopic pools of sound as they build up towering, crystalline crescendos.
