Bearded Radio review Holiday '14 EP

Bearded Radio blog have written an article about our new Holiday '14 EP.
Here's an excerpt of the article :

"Parralox are one of Australia’s best kept secrets, formed in 2008 by the multi-talented John von Ahlen. Since then Parralox have released numerous singles and 5 outstanding albums, including one of my all time favourites, “State of Decay” in 2009.
Parralox are a band steeped in the heritage of electronic music and you hear the loving homage to their musical influences such as  Depeche Mode, Erasure, Kraftwerk and The Human League in both their singles and albums. However do not think that Parralox are merely another band repacking and recycling great moments in musical history. John von Ahlen is a pop alchemist with ability to write, produce and perform a wide range of masterpieces from euphoric pop gems to dark atmospheric soundscapes."

A Merry Synthmas with Parralox

Coldwarnightlife, the amazing blog covering all things synth, has written an article on the new Parralox EP 'Holiday '14'.
Here's a snippet of the article :
"There must be an army of elves working in Parralox‘s studio. So far, this year, not only have they given us a complete reboot of their first album, Electricity; not only have they secured a support slot for Erasure in London; not only have they given us one of the singles of the year (“Crying on the Dancefloor”) – they have also found time to knock out a classy new EP, just in time for seasonal giving. Holiday ’14 is a sheer stocking filled with sexy surprises, like covers of Human League classics and enough originals and holiday tracks to keep you humming into the New Year, whether you’ve been naughty or nice."

Electricity (Expanded) reviewed on Cold War Night Life

Parralox's latest album "Electricity (Expanded)" has been reviewed by the lovely folk at Cold War Night Life". Here's an extract of the article :
"Going back to Parralox‘s first album, Electricity, is like rifling through a collection of the best singles of the 1980s. John von Ahlen’s celebrated lyric videos for Parralox compress the decade’s finest music into graphical quotes, hints and allusions, sometimes using nothing more than the colour palette of a Neville Brody or Designers Republic sleeve. On record, the references come fast and furious, in complex layers. Each listen reveals another tribute to Yazoo, Front 242, Propaganda, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, OMD, that John Farnham track from Hot Rod, Depeche Mode, Ultravox, Human League, New Order, Kraftwerk – a breath-taking sweep through the best-loved poptronica of the period, even if the clue is just a particular reverb on the snare or a three-note chord played on a Pro One."
