Sneak Preview of Holiday '16 Limited Edition CD Inlay
Subculture is our 9th studio album, featuring some truly amazing guest vocalists and performers including:
Marcella Detroit (Shakespeares Sister, Absolutely Fabulous, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band), Johanna Gervin, Louise Love, Peter Wilson, A7-H, Lillia and Ian Burden (The Human League).
The Subculture album is divided into Side A (Red) and Side B (Blue). What do the colours mean? We took a leaf from one of our favourite bands (The Human League) and colour coded the songs according to their style. Red is for Dance and Blue is for Pop. We've been busy working on Subculture for the last year, and we are all so proud and pleased to finally release it to the world! There are a variety of styles on the album, but the main influence here is Italodisco, with a dash of 80s and 90s dance.
Holiday '16 is the latest installment in our annual cover album series and our 10th studio album. Louise Love features on the album. Holiday '16 includes a variety of our favourite songs. Trust me when I say we had a short-list of over 50 songs to choose from, so it was difficult to narrow down on a final selection. But thankfully it means we have several more years worth of songs to make!
Remixes 2 is a collection of remixes that Parralox has made for other artists. This is a Limited Edition CD available ONLY with the purchase of the Deluxe Edition of Subculture (now sold out).
In 2017 the first single released from Subculture will be Electric Nights, feat Johanna Gervin on lead vocals, with Roxy, Johnny X and Louise Love on backing vocals. There will be an EP released with many amazing remixes, and so far we can confirm remixes from Pete Hammond (Stock/Aitken/Waterman), Will Alonso, Oren Amram, People Theatre and Bluepint with many more to come.
So it's going to be a very musical Xmas and an even better 2017!
John, Johanna & Louise.
