Parralox’s ‘Metropolis’ album

Australia’s beacon of pure SynthPop light in the darkness, Parralox, are releasing their third studio album this month.

‘Metropolis’ is a totally well crafted album that shows a definite progression in Parralox’s sound, slowly moving away from the generic Modern SynthPop (of which they were always better than the pack) to encompass more contemporary electronic music styles. Of course there is still shades of Depeche Mode et al in the mix, but this time around it all sound so much more fresh. This is an electronic Pop album that has come from the Modern SynthPop scene but can stand toe to toe with some of the greats of current ElectroPop or Indie-Electro, and that is a rare and special thing indeed.

Just check out ‘Don’t Listen To Me’, a top quality ElectroPop track that fuses twenty first century Electro production techniques with an 80’s influenced songwriting style that also nods toward Disco-Pop in a way that is pretty flawless. This could be the album that sees Parralox playing in the big leagues.
