Hot Electro Pop: Parralox

Where has Parralox been all of my life? I hate being behind the times when it comes to new music but there's just so much out there right now that this Aussie-gem slipped right past me. Parralox is a snippet of electro-pop perfection that was created by John Von Ahlen back in 2008. According to their MySpace page, the group was created "from the love of all things synthetic, science-fiction and surreal." The influences are are immediately noticeable in both the music, lyrics and stunning artwork campaign.

Parralox - John Von AhlenThe group is made up of Von Ahlen (Tenth Stage) and singer Amii, who's only major credit prior was a featured vocal on the 2007 Australian club track "Star Rider." 2008 saw the release of Parralox's debut album, Electricity (get it on U.S. iTunes HERE) which featured the song "Sharper Than A Knife", which has been re-released off of the duo's new album, State of Decay, which came out on November 13th. Two digital singles were released from State of Play back in October - "Hotter" (buy it on iTunes HERE) and "I Am Human," (buy it on iTunes HERE) both of which are NOW being released physically. The catch is that only 250 copies of each were pressed so stock is extremely limited.
