London trio Parakeet have revealed that they’re set to support buzzy Brooklynites DIIV this summer, coinciding with the release of a series of self-made cover videos of cult 90s acts including Hüsker Dü. Full details of all Parakeets shows, including next week’s White Heat gig on the 24th July, are below.
Watch Parakeet’s three lo-fi cover videos as follows, starting off with the recent Clash-premiered No Wings Fins Or Fuselage track ‘Campaign Against Torpidity’ HERE
