Dreams of Leaving

by Parralox



I'm sure I can be just like someone's neighbour...

Imagine it's 1981 and Martin Rushent and Giorgio Moroder produced Travelogue.
What could that sound like?

Parralox have produced a loving recreation of The Human League's classic 2nd album "Travelogue" using analog synths including Matrix Brute, Fairlight CMI30A, Sequential Circuits Pro One and Jupiter 8.

Travelogue is also available as a Limited Edition 4 CD (Super Deluxe Fan Bundle)" and features 3 Bonus Limited Edition CD-Rs:

CD-R 1: Parralox - Hotter (Luminiferous Remixes) (Limited Edition)
CD-R 2: Parralox - Remix Series - DMT Berzerk 2 (Limited Edition)
CD-R 3: Parralox - Megamix 2017 (Limited Edition)

The Limited Edition CD Bundle can be purchased on conzoom records


Dreams of Leaving
Written by Philip Oakey, Ian Craig Marsh, Adrian Wright & Martyn Ware.

Someone stopped the clock when we should have started early
If we miss the morning meeting our lives will be in danger
Someone's trying to stop us, there is someone in our party
It is someone with a grudge and they won't let us reach the border

Our lives are in his hands, we pay with Krugerands
The currency of pain to help us leaving
While back in our homeland the ones who make a stand
Are taken from their homes and no one hears of them again

I felt I had to come here, I thought things would be better
The situation's changed but I find I'm still resented
Someone wants my job it is someone in this building
Someone's spreading rumours and I don't feel I can stay here

I think I'm going north and now's the time to leave
The people there they say are good to strangers
And if I do my best and try to settle in
I'm sure I can be just like someone's neighbour

I'm sure I can be just like someone's neighbour

Parralox Melbourne, Australia

If ever there was a new electronic pop band to encapsulate and emulate the legendary stylings of Depeche Mode, The Human League, Erasure, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and the spirit of Madonna in her 80s day-glo era, then Australia’s Parralox are that modern-day reincarnation. ... more
