BIRTHH is the project of the Florence-born 22-year-old singer/songwriter Alice Bisi.
Parakeet is the third single of her upcoming album WHOA and it sounds wonderful. I like the crystal clear vocals. Besides, the melodies are unique. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the dynamic chorus.
Lyrically, the song is very impressive. Parakeet is a tribute to BIRTHH’s beloved grandmother.
On the single, BIRTHH says: ”Growing up I used to spend a lot of time with my grandma, she was the silent type, definitely someone who showed her love through action, not as much through words. She had two parakeets, her eyes watered a little when the first one died, she loved Nougat and I don’t remember her ever yelling at me – or at anybody else for that matter. Two years ago I was touring around Europe supporting Hein Cooper, my dad called me and said that nana just had a stroke, that she survived but wasn’t really the nonna Franca we were used to anymore. Before visiting her at the hospital I collected all the pictures and memories I had of my childhood with her, that’s how Parakeet was born. Every line is a memory, music is a time machine, I wrote this one for myself and myself only.”
Parakeet is a track that needs a lot of attention. Be sure to streaming it as soon as possible!
