about

“Hypnotized with angelic shoegaze vibes that touch on the bigger questions in life.” ~ The Wild Honey Pie

The dazzling, sprawling sonic atmospheres conjured by Brooklyn-based band Parrot Dream 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 Parrot Dream’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, Parrot Dream draw you in to wade in deep, kaleidoscopic pools of sound as they build up towering, crystalline crescendos.

Light Goes is out now and is the eighth release from Good Eye Records.

Dark eyes shine
Lit by fire
Burn so bright

Now
They are here
Holding on
For the kill

Feel
The last breath
As it leaves
From your lips

Now
They are here
Holding on
For the kill

Feel
The last breath
As it leaves
From your lips

Hear them now
Go slow
Watch them now
Bleed out

Bleed out

He sees a way out

Track Name: Paradise & Prey
Paradise & Prey

Here come the mountain men
Built of both sand and stone
Their heads are full of birds
Of paradise and prey

Here come the mountain men
Cloaks in their bloody hands
Hearts full as warriors
Of paradise and prey

When I see you
Lying there in the dark
Like a stranger
Like a stranger
I want you to believe
I want you to believe
I want you to believe

When you kiss me
Soft and slowly
Like a stranger
Like a stranger
I want you to believe
I want you to believe

Find me when you want it and
I know you will be there and
I don't know if you'll find me
But I know that I want you to believe
I want you to believe
I want you to believe
Believe

All I know
Track Name: By Your Side
By Your Side

You see me
Fall behind
Count down slowly
To the end

She breathes deep
Love lock on
Sea churns softly
As she goes

You don't know
It begins
Creeping swiftly
Soul in tow

Newfound heart
Blazing true
Rings so truly
As she stays

By your side
Track Name: Fall Forward
Fall Forward

Oh where you go
I don’t notice
See how they lay
Hear them crying

Oh I see
You in my dreams
Oh I see
You in my dreams
At night

You say
The way is forward
One way
Is painted over
Fall forward
The way is forward
Fall forward
Fall forward
Fall forward
Fall
Track Name: Cloudchaser
Cloudchaser

Sunshine in the rain
We’ve all gone down again
I can't see the way
But all I feel dismay

Forecast isn't good
I'd get out while you could
Find some shelter soon
Before the next typhoon

Take cover

Rain cloud chaser
Grey skies seeker

Take cover
Track Name: Ode To Octavia
Ode to Octavia
*inspired by and dedicated to Octavia Butler

All his roles
Played behind
They march now
Till the end

You know you’ll never see
Another way to live
You know you’ll never find
Another way to breathe
You know you’ll never see
Another way

This madness
Cuts so deep
Into core
Seeds of harm

You know you’ll never see
Another way to live
You know you’ll never find
Another way to breathe
You know you’ll never see
Another way

All you touch
You must change
All you touch
You must change

All you touch (As life)
You must change (As wind)
All you touch (As fire)
You must change (As light)
Track Name: Helium
Helium

Universe
Crowds us out
Helium
Helps us float away
How we sway
Float away

Universe
Fills the room
Particles
Scatter every way

How they sway
Float away
How we fly
Helium
See anew

One more ride
Count me in
Space and time
Do divide

Universe
Fills the room
Particles
Scatter every way

How we sway
Float away
How we fly
Helium
See anew
