The latest from Parralox is titled Metropolis. The music is upbeat Pop Synth/Electro Pop. The tracks are well put together and have a sophistication to them that reminds me of Depeche Mode or even Abba (no, I’m not kidding). To add to the “darkness” of the album is an awesome cover of Radiohead’s Creep (but it’s FCC non-compliant, bummer). I’m not a huge fan of Synth Pop but these tracks have irresistable hooks that pull you into the music. Worth checking out.
RIYD: Depeche Mode, Abba, Goldfrapp
