Parallels – Civilization

Official music video 'Civilization' by 'Parallels'. Director: Mark Moliterni.

After hit­ting #1 on Canada's National Electronic Chart in October 2015, Toronto elec­tro-pop trio PARALLELS is back in the stu­dio record­ing a fol­low-up to their 'Civilization EP'. NME described front-woman, Holly Dodson’s vocals as "A young Madonna meet’s mod­ern elec­tro”. They can be heard in the soundtrack of 2013 Oscar win­ning short-film “Curfew” fea­tur­ing Parallels’ song “Dry Blood”. Holly is joined by her broth­er, Nick Dodson on drums and key­board­ist Artem Galperine on synths.

Lyrics:

still, time stood for me
to show we needed sympathy
i under­stand bet­ter from a dis­tance, we were only lost

we were blue like the veins
run­ning rivers down your face

we'll carry on in civilization
the sky­line in the night had nev­er looked so real
strangers in a city dead for dreamers
idling satel­lites, look­ing in

where do we belong, without a place in civilization?
where do we belong, without a place in civilization?

mid­night wrapped around me
i felt the cold­est touch of absence fall upon these streets
in shad­ows lie, turn to face reflec­tions to feel not so alone

we nev­er choose these battles in isol­a­tion, they're nev­er won

so carry on in civilization
the sky­line in the night had nev­er looked so real
strangers in a city dead for dreamers
idling satel­lites, look­ing in

where do we belong, without a place in civilization?
where do we belong, without a place in civilization?
