Parralox Releases Ninth Studio Album, "Genesis"
eMusic Wire/10044291

NEW YORK - eMusicWire -- The Australian electronic pop band, Parralox, fronted by out singer John von Ahlen, continues its mission to champion the synthesized wave pop sound of Depeche Mode,  Erasure, New Order, and the Pet Shop Boys with its ninth studio album, Genesis, out now.   "Everything we do is informed from a blend of 80's music and current dance beats, specifically progressive house," explains von Ahlen.  The album's forthcoming single release will be "Tears of Faith feat. Jane Badler," a down-tempo electronic dance arrangement about broken relationships, the hope for reconciliation and the need for humanity to be kinder to one other, as well as to ourselves.  Produced by John von Ahlen, Genesis is available on Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, and all digital platforms now.  An album preview is on YouTube at https://youtu.be/in5CY_1RQWA.

Genesis follows the band's previous album, Subculture. According to von Ahlen, the album represents growth for the band. "Genesis is more mature than anything we've ever produced, especially in terms of its songwriting," he contends.  "When the band first started, we borrowed a lot from the 80s. We still do today, but to a much lesser extent. We're finding more of our own style and exhibiting our own unique perspective."

The band has experienced several shake-ups through its history — several singers have come and gone — but the lineup has remained stable for the last six years.  It currently features female vocalists Johanna Gervin and Louise Love and Bass Guitarist Ian Burden (formerly of The Human League). John von Ahlen is the band's lead vocalist; something that still surprises him.

"I never wanted to be a pop singer," he admits.  "I still don't!  I totally fell into it ass-backwards."

For years, John von Ahlen was simply a music producer, specializing in production and engineering for other artists.   Though he was making excellent money,  it got to a point where he felt trapped in a soulless job.   Anxious to make music for himself, he launched The Tenth Stage, a very dark, gothic and theatrical band with an electronic element.   It wasn't enough. He had pop music inside of him, and it needed to be heard.

In 2007, he collaborated with vocalist Rowena "Roxy" Martin on a new track he had written, "I Fell in Love with a Drum Machine". The success of the song led to the duo recording their first album together, Electricity.  It included the single, "Sharper Than a Knife", heralded by Hollywood gossip columnist Perez Hilton.
