People of Earth, your attention please.

Wind back your clocks to 2009 - 10 years ago - to when Parralox was touring Germany, on the Electro City Moods tour.

One of the tracks we performed was Isn't It Strange, which appears on the State of Decay album.

This version was specially made for the live concert, and now you can hear the full version including studio vocals.

This track was recorded on Friday the 18th of December, 2009 at Subterrane Recording Studio.


Isn't It Strange
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Isn't it strange, the moment we met?
The passion we felt, the lack of regret
I stare at a photo sent over a week ago
And isn't it strange, how quickly we fell?

Now isn't it strange when the world you knew
Is tumbling down, into something new
Now don't be afraid it's the moment
You lived your life for
It's Heaven and Hell, and we all play a part
I'm watching my perfect world fall apart
The changes are here, I won't fight what
I lived my life for

Verse 2
Isn't it strange, whenever it rains?
The message it sends, to the heart and the brain
Then suddenly I am feeling the terror climb
And isn't it strange how a memory fades?

Dedicated to Adam Joel Bennett Wood

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
