Eye In The Sky - New EP out now!


"Eye In The Sky" by Parralox marks a new era for the Melbourne based electronic pop act who are moving in excitingly new brighter directions after the release of their re-interpeted electronic pop classics album "Recovery".

Having received elevated acclaim in US club culture and in the pop music blogoshpere by MTV Buzzworthy, Elektro Magazine and Arjan Writes with their collaboration with Ryan Adames on "Silent Morning", it's evident that the Parralox sound continues to resonate deeply into the fabric of the popular music landscape.
For fans of rhythm-driven soft rock, "Eye in the Sky" will be a familiar tune as it was originally recorded by The Alan Parsons Project in 1982.

Some might think a melancholic soft-rock track from the 80's wouldn't be the first choice for Parralox to cover, but with the song's haunting and serene overtures, Parralox were determined to breathe a new life into the song marking their change of direction in 2014. For the first time, Parralox producer John von Ahlen takes on lead vocals for "Eye In The Sky", a first for Parralox in this new era of their music.


The music video for "Eye In The Sky" is a collaboration between John Ibrahm and John von Ahlen. After endless cups of coffee and many late nights in John's Melbourne studio, a vision for the clip started to slowly emerge. Rather than rely on CGI and special effects it was decided to construct a practical mirror box set piece to achieve the optical illusion of infinite reflections in the music video.

Fashion model Rowena Kang co-stars in the video to add an otherworldy vibe to the clip, with some scenes reminiscent of Japanese horror movie "The Ring". Rowena's unique and striking presence brings a whole new element to the Parralox clip and you'll be able to see why she has already been headhunted by the major fashion houses in Paris.
Decidedly claustrophobic, the "Eye In The Sky" video captures the essence of reflection, observation and introspection.

Parralox will also be doing an intimate show on February 7th, 2014 for EQ Live at The Workshop in London's fashionable Shoreditch area where new female, London-based vocalist Johanna Gervin (The Ultrasonics / X-Factor) will make her Parralox debut singing classic Parralox tracks along with new material from the band's next album "Subculture".

The "Eye In The Sky" digital EP by Parralox is out now worldwide on all leading online retailers including iTunes and Amazon. The EP features new remixes from the "Recovery" album and many new b-sides with a physical EP coming out on Conzoom Records January 2014 for Parralox's loyal international fan base.

Unreleased Human League song - You're My Baby

Parralox - Youre My Baby feat Ian Burden
DRUMSET MYSTERY
"Onstage there was no drumset at all , but you can perfectly hear it!!!"

Wind the clock back to 1982.
The Human League are on top of the world, basking in the success of their seminal album "Dare" which they perform live across the world. People bought cassettes, vinyl records and listened to the radio. Mp3, CD and internet were in the distant future.
As The Human League performed "Don't You Wan't Me" to the enthralled masses, they would sometimes start their live performance with a song called "You're My Baby".
Mystery has shrouded this track for decades. Information was non existent. There were rumours that the track was originally performed by the Motown girl-group "The Shirelles".
The only place you could hear "Youre My Baby", apart from being at a concert, was on vinyl bootlegs. The most notable bootlegs being "Drumset Mystery" and "Boiling Point".

Fast forward to 2013.
Ian Burden (bass guitarist for the The Human League, co-writer of Love Action/The Sound Of The Crowd etc) is now friends with John von Ahlen (Parralox/The Tenth Stage/The Sound Of The Crowd) and has contributed bass guitar to each of these projects.

It all began with a conversation between John and Ian Burden about "You're My Baby", in which Ian spoke about touring with the band in the 80's and the origin of the song. It's revealed that the song is written by one Mr I. Elliot, a relative of one of the members of the Comsat Angels. Connections are made and Mr Elliot is contacted and gives his blessings for the track to be recorded.

Parralox release their 5th album "Recovery" which is all cover versions, and one of the tracks recorded in the studio sessions was "You're My Baby". Ian Burden enters the studio and performs bass guitar, in addition to some keyboard parts for the new Parralox recording of "You're My Baby" and the rest is history.
Special thanks to Ian Burden and Mr I. Elliot.

"You're My Baby" appears on the new Parralox EP "Eye In The Sky" out on 11-12-13
It will also be available on a Limited Edition CD from conzoom Records in December 2013.
