New video - Parralox - Under the Skin

New Video Tuesday - Under the Skin

Under the Skin is a song taken from our new album Genesis. It also shares the title with a science fiction movie directed by Jonathan Glazer, featuring the amazing Scarlett Johansson.
The song started with the title (as most Parralox songs do) and I thought it would be neat to read the script of the movie to see if I could get some lyrical inspiration.
After finding a website which had the script for the movie, I read it and was thinking "I really can't remember this being in the movie, is this a directors cut??" and suddenly realised it was a satire website.
I used the opening line of that script as the template for the madness of the rest of the song. Louise Love also contributed some suitably insane vocals.
A Yamaha DX100 (my first synth, with the Roland SH-101 being purchased shortly after) provided the funk.
Under the Skin is dedicated to Grace Kelly, and features Louise Love on lead vocals, with guest growls by the legendary Jack von Ahlen.

New Video Tuesday - Parralox - Duel (Propaganda)

New Video Tuesday - Duel (Propaganda Cover)
This weeks "New Video Tuesday" is the classic Propaganda track "Duel", taken from our new album Holiday '19.

"Duel" is the second single by German pop group Propaganda. The song was included on their first album, A Secret Wish which was produced by Stephen Lipson under the supervision of label boss Trevor Horn..

Released in the United Kingdom in April 1985, it became their most successful single in the UK, reaching no. 21. This led to the band making their sole appearance on the flagship BBC music programme, Top of the Pops, in June of that year.

"Duel" was originally released with an alternative version of the track, "Jewel (Rough Cut)" as the B-side. This featured the same lyrics delivered in a more aggressive manner, mainly by Suzanne Freytag, over a backing track of heavy beats and industrial sound effects.

A 12-inch mix, "Jewel (Cut Rough)" extended this with further sound effects, and an instrumental version appeared on the group's debut album, A Secret Wish.

The two approaches to the song were combined in two different tracks. "Bejewelled" played the song through, alternating between the two versions, while "Jewelled", on the remix album Wishful Thinking, combined elements of both, with the melodies of "Duel" playing alongside the rhythms of "Jewel".

The Parralox version combines elements of both original versions, with a predominantly slower (half) tempo throughout.

Duel is dedicated to Sean M Carroll PhD and includes Louise Love on lead vocals, with John von Ahlen on BVs.

In The Studio with Parralox - Resurrection

Parralox In The Studio - Resurrection

Since Parralox began we have recorded nearly all of our studio sessions with Roxy, Amii and Louise. Due to a combination of being too busy and way too busy (!) we haven't really uploaded many of these to YouTube. But that all changes now!
Get a behind the scenes look at our recording session for a new song called Resurrection, featuring the amazing Louise Love on vocals.
Marvel at the wall to wall vintage analog synthesizers, and swoon at the cuteness of Jack our resident canine friend at Subterrane Recording Studio.
