ABOUT THE SINGLE
Electronic musician/producer Amongst The Pigeons (Daniel Parsons) released over 70 tracks in a ten-year period between 2004 and 2014 before calling it a day. However this year they are back with new music and updated live shows lined up for the summer.
‘Polly Bee Gone’ is the first new material in five years and features on the forthcoming 18 track album ‘Begging your pardon (an introductory collection)’ which is released on 15 March 2019. The album (as you may guess from the title) is a collection of mostly older tracks which have all been remixed and remastered, including previous collaborations with artists such as Frank Turner and Beans on Toast.
This new single is a short jab into the frantic sounds of ATP and will also feature on a 6 track EP of entirely new material later this year. The sound is hard to describe but is a natural evolution of the ‘post party mash up’ genre that ATP was well known for and will hopefully send listeners on a bizarre sonic journey.
Previously Amongst The Pigeons has received national airplay by the likes of Steve Lamacq, Rob Da Bank and Mary Anne Hobbs along with a host of local stations in both UK & USA. He has previously played at festivals such as Glastonbury, The Great Escape and Secret Garden Party.
The single is available to listen to and download from SoundCloud and there is a video which accompanies the release that follows the journey of a 6ft Pigeon walking through London and along the Sussex coast in search of Polly. Both are available below.
Fun fact – the Police in London don’t take too kindly to musicians walking around Trafalgar Square in a spooky Pigeon mask. Who’d have guessed?

Since 2004, Brighton based electro-dance producer Amongst The Pigeons (Daniel Parsons) has been defining a sound that only they fit into. Never ones to follow the latest musical trend they have stuck to crafting their own blend of ‘post-party-mash-up’ which won praise and accolade through the release of 2 full-length albums, 8 EPs and various one-off singles.
The ATP sound was once described as ‘a dark Mr. Scruff’ and full of ‘relentless imagination’ – taking influence from sci-fi soundtracks and artists such as Orbital and Underworld.
On record, when needed, ATP enlisted guest vocalists, including the likes of Frank Turner, Beans on Toast, Ben Marwood, Oxygen Thief, and Chris T-T along with a whole host of up and coming artists.
The last ATP release was in 2014 and at the time Daniel though that would be the end for ATP but he’s back with brand new music being released in 2019, preceded by an ‘introductory’ collection.
