P A R A L L E L S
Announce The Release of Highly Anticipated New Album 'XII' Out June 26.
Release Free MP3 Of Debut Single "Moonlight Desires"
Toronto based glam-pop outfit Parallels are set to release their second album XII out June 26, 2012 through Marigold Records. The album is a perfect blend of sparkling pop and electronic radiance. While their 2010 release, "Visionaries" boasted a darker blend of static synths and HI-NRG rhythm patterns, XII takes on a brighter direction with front girl Holly Dodson's honey-sweet vocals enveloping the record with a radiant, moonlit perfection.

Parallels have received critical acclaim, with their previous release featured on french boutique imprint Kitsune Maison and notable collaborations with a fantastic list of artists including English indie quartet Delphic. Gearing up for a full national tour this Spring, Parallels are excited to cross the borders with a brand new live set-up featuring Artem Galperine on keyboards and Nick Dodson on drums.
Having shared the stage with internationally-acclaimed artists including Florence and the Machine, The Juan MacLean, Sebastian Tellier, Crystal Castles, Midnight Juggernauts, A-Trak and Broken Social Scene, keep watch for full details on Parallels' US tour this Spring to promote their highly anticipated forthcoming release.
"Her pipes have a sweet but haunting fragility to them, and when juxtaposed with synth-heavy, gothic pop gems... the results are a kaleidoscopic, aural roller coaster that you'll probably want to ride over and over again."
"A young Madonna-meets modern electro"
"Parallels pull off that balancing act between retro and futuristic, borrowing from the past while pushing the sound forward into the present. Their take on darkly lustrous synth-pop is certainly amongst the catchiest stuff you'll hear all year."
"Crackling with ‘80s dance sentiment and new-wave electricity, Parallels' brand of sonic joy could be called the new vintage."
"That straight ahead dance beat, the vibrating synths and and the nightmare-twinkling piano laid on top are New Order or Depeche Mode through and through."

"John Crawford of Berlin-like arrangements and Talk Talk/early 80's pop ingenue singing against one another in an appropriate mix of throwback gems"
