about

Sharper than a Knife was the first single released by Parralox, hot on the heels of our debut album "Electricity" way back in 2009, with vocals by the legendary Roxy.

We had quite a few people work on remixes on Sharper than a Knife, and as much as we would loved to have release all of them, we had to make a decision on what to include on the official release. This left us with a LOT of remixes that sat in our vaults for many years, unheard and unreleased.

We re-recorded Sharper than a Knife in 2012 with brand new vocals courtesy of Amii, one of the finest voices in synthpop.

Fast forward to 2019, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Parralox and conzoom Records we released "Singles 1" the first Parralox album released on Vinyl.

The Vinyl LP is available in 3 different colours, and each different coloured Vinyl LP came with an exclusive CD.

One of the CDs was Sharper than a Knife (Unreleased Remixes) and you can now download the tracks right here on Bandcamp. There are STILL heaps of unreleased remixes and we will no doubt release them one day.

Enjoy!

John, Johanna and Louise.

Sharper than a Knife
Written by John von Ahlen

It was only a matter of time
Before I had to say goodbye
Johnny 7 knows I'm right
We talk about it all the time

I told you lies, I even compromised
I tell you
I'll never feel that way again

Why did you try to change me I thought you'd realise?
It took me so long, but now that you're gone I'm fine
You hurt me so bad, I don't know if you can understand
That your love cut me sharper than a knife

Now I hope you understand
Biggest person in the land
That is something you are not
My self respect is all I've got

I told you lies, I even compromised
I tell you
I'll never feel that way again

Why did you try to change me I thought you'd realise?
It took me so long, but now that you're gone I'm fine
You hurt me so bad, I don't know if you can understand

I tell you
I'll never feel that way again

Why did you try to change me I thought you'd realise?
It took me so long, but now that you're gone I'm fine
You hurt me so bad, I don't know if you can understand
