Parralox in Tokyo

Parralox in Tokyo

いらっしゃいませ! Greetings from Tokyo!
I arrived in Japan last week and have been busy travelling across the country, meeting new people and old friends. But the main reason for being here is Parralox.
I've already written 3 new songs for Parralox, plus we plan on shooting a music video in Shinjuku and Shibuya,but we have a heatwave at the moment - so we will see what happens.
I'm here with another UK band "Your Silent Face" (aka Mike and Nic) and last week we travelled across Tokyo in search of music and synths.
One highlight was Five G in Shibuya and we were gobsmacked at their amazing synthesizer collection. My suitcase weighs considerably more now.
A few demos have already been started, so I can't wait for you to hear those. They definitely have a Japanese influence, but not in the way you expect.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the new music videos and songs that will be coming out everyweek on YouTube and Bandcamp (we have HEAPS of remixes coming out).
Please enjoy my Travelogue above (more synth photos coming to the Gallery here).
Arigato Gozaimasu!

Jane Badler recording with Parralox

Jane Badler recording with Parralox

 

Guess who has been recording some new vocals? Yes, none other than the Queen of Sci Fi herself, Jane Badler!
Most of you know her from V - The Series, back in the 80's. Jane has also been busy the last decade performing her amazing body of music all around the world.
I had an amazing week with recording with Jane Badler! We've recorded quite a few songs so far, all of them written and produced by John von Ahlen.

You'll be able to hear them when Jane releases her EP very soon.
AND she will also be featuring on the next Parralox album! ❤️🎹❤️
So stay tuned for lots of new music from both Jane and Parralox. Delicious!!

July marks the commencement of our 10 year anniversary, and we have LOTS of exciting things in store.

First up we have the imminent digital release of Paradise feat Marcella Detroit, along with an AMAZING film clip and remixes.

We will also aim to release a new video each week on YouTube, whether it's an official mix, a bootleg remix or some behind the scenes footage in Subterrane Recording Studio.
