about

Greetings everyone,

As some of you may be aware, we are hard at work in the studio getting ready to release our next single "Goodbye Berlin" as well as our triple colour Vinyl LP "Singles 2".

Then there's also the classic album "Travelogue" (released by The Human League in 1980) that we are covering in it's entirety.
We've made good progress on the album, but have now decided to also record the bonus tracks that were included on their CD reissue in 1988 / 2003.
This will naturally delay the release of the album a little but, but the results will be worth the wait.

As a little teaser we are happy to share with the the Acapella version of "The Touchables" which was recorded at Subterrane Recording Studio, Melbourne, Australia on Wednesday the 12th of August, 2020.

Stay tuned for more previews of our work on the Travelogue album.

Be safe and look after each other.

lyrics

The Touchables
Written by Philip Oakey, Ian Craig Marsh, Adrian Wright & Martyn Ware.

Speaking of which, what is your choice
Your conversation will suffice
I feel the need that's known to all
Better use it up before the levels fall
You can take me back to the primal drive
You can carry on until we arrive
Hypnotised inside
Now I'm not young and you're not old
I'd rather purchase than be sold
Crazed friends so bold

It's not easy to conceal
When you're so touchable
People will hide indifference
Just to be touchable
They still emit split second screams
When they are touchable
Under the surface just for kicks
Sincerely touchable

You say it's okay, but what do I feel
Guilt, compassion, or Achilles Heel
Little feet march down grey matter hill
Then panic occurs, no seeds to spill
What's the matter now
Please look up and speak
Your spirit's wilting and your flesh is weak
Eight days a week
I can't imagine what'll happen now
I wonder when and I wonder how
The end will come

It's not easy to conceal
When you're so touchable
People will hide indifference
Just to be touchable

It's not easy to conceal
When you're so touchable
People will hide indifference
Just to be touchable
They still emit split second screams
When they are touchable
Under the surface just for kicks
Sincerely touchable

The final answer to all our fears
Abrupt conclusion to all our years
Still touchable but no one hears
They carry on hypnotised inside

about

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
