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?
