Parallels / Bio

After a whirlwind 20-date 2012 USA Tour to promote the release of the highly anticipated sophomore full-length album XII, due out in the spring of 2012 (Marigold/E1).

Parallels is the moniker for electronic-pop front girl Holly Dodson, whose vocals combine the intense balladry of Kate Bush with the sweetness of Madonna's true-blue era. A true front woman through and through, Dodson channels the magnetism of free-spirited predecessors like Stevie Nicks whilst weaving together sounds of static circuitry with lilting neu-Italo undertones into a patchwork of complex sonic stratums. Using a collection of vintage synthesizers and up tempo HI-NRG rhythm patterns, Parallels has been likened to the classic pop sentiments of Giorgio Moroder, New Order and Depeche Mode.

Recently playing SOLD OUT shows in Moscow, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver to name a few, Parallels have shared the stage with internationally-acclaimed artists such as Florence and the Machine, The Juan MacLean, Sebastian Tellier, Crystal Castles, Midnight Juggernauts, A-Trak, Broken Social Scene and Miami Horror, just to name a few. Parallels was chosen "Critics Pick" for Torontos Best Electronic Band amongst notables Drake and Metric, Parallels is creating quite a stir with their various collaborations, including an official remix for English indie quartet Delphics track "This Momentary," Parallels has indeed been taking the world by storm with "Find The Fire" off their debut featured on the Kitsune Maison Compilation 8.

Parallels released "Visionaries" through Marigold Records in April 2010 and was described as a "12-song sonic juggernaut" brimming with twinkling, electronic arpeggios and EBM overtones. Their latest EP, Time Will Crawl EP has been described by fans as a reason to start loving synth-pop!
