Melbourne electro-pop outfit Parralox are a revelation. A band whose music is so well-produced, so flawless, so perfect, it takes your breath away. For their fifth studio album, the group turned their hand to covering some of the greatest songs of the late 20th Century – that special period in which popular music arguably reached its apogee.
The result is a concept album of sorts, filled with stunning reinterpretations from the canons of Erasure, Depeche Mode, Madonna, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and more.
A highlight here is difficult to choose but their haunting version of the Alan Parsons Project’s Eye in the Sky takes the cake. (PH)
