Hi everyone,

Hope you're all staying safe in these crazy times.

Today's track is the first Parralox track released publicly: I Fell In Love With A Drum Machine.
This is the rehearsal version, or Karaoke version if you will, and is basically a version with the lead vocals removed.
Vocals are by Roxy.

We used this track to rehearse for our debut performance in Shoreditch, London in 2008.

Recorded at Subterrane Recording Studio, Melbourne, Australia on Wednesday the 22nd of October, 2008.

Take care,



I Fell In Love With A Drum Machine
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
I dream I'm electric when I dream of you (I dream I'm electric)
And there's a connection do you feel it too (I can feel the connection)
The night is approaching it's coming on strong (The night approaches so quickly)
The night is electric we can do no wrong (Electricity)

Pre Chorus
You don't' love me, like I love you
And you don't need me, like I need you

Somebody tell me this is just a dream
I fell in love with a drum machine!

Verse 2
Don't tell me I'm crazy I know that I'm not (Don't tell me I'm crazy)
It's simply a case of "I Love You Too Much" (I love you my LinnDrum)
These feelings I have they do make me confused (Why don't you tell me you love me)
I've never before had my love refused (I don't understand)

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
