Parallels are bringing their unique brand of dark, shimmering dance pop to Brooklyn, and whoa whoa whoa, who the heck is this band? Some information: Parallels is an electronic-pop duo consisting of Cameron Findlay (former drummer of Crystal Castles) and honey-haired front girl Holly Dodson, whose vocals combine the intense balladry of Kate Bush with the sweetness of Kylie Minogue and Madonna's true-blue era. Their sound is easily likened to classic pop sentiments of the "big guys" like New Order and Depeche Mode, but with a modern relevancy.
Parallels will be releasing a deluxe edition of debut full-length, Visionaries, on October 26 through Marigold Records. This US-exclusive re-issue features a bonus disc featuring remixes from Gypsy Midnight, Human Life, TRUST and Dark Esquire, as well as a cover of The Ramones' Pet Sematary, which you can actually snag for free below.
