‘Take Me Away’ by El Perro | New Album, ‘Hair of El Perro’
Exclusive track premiere of ‘Take Me Away’ by El Perro, taken from their new album, ‘Hair of El Perro’, out June 3rd via Alive Naturalsound Records.
El Perro is a brand new band led by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter/producer Parker Griggs. The band’s sound contains elements that fans of his band Radio Moscow will recognize, but this is rock music with a new, fresh spin and feel.
El Perro takes heavy psychedelic rock as a starting point and adds the additional instrumentation of a second guitar and a percussionist, pushing the music into more syncopated territory, spiced with Latin rhythms and hints of Funkadelic-style grooves. You could say that El Perro plays psychedelic funk rock, and you wouldn’t be wrong.
“‘Take Me Away’ is a song about escape. Trying to get away from what drags you down and takes you away from your true self and who you really want to be. It’s a song about struggling to find the answer but also about trying to live for a brighter day.” Parker Griggs
El Perro is Parker Griggs, along with former Radio Moscow drummer Lonnie Blanton, bassist Shawn Davis, guitarist Jaron Yancey and percussionist Tawny Harrington.
