"Undoubtedly one of Canada's finest synth-pop exports..." - Electronic Rumors (UK, 2015)

"[CIvilization] sounds like Parallels at their best: equally sweet and sweeping and entirely catchy" - Silent Shout (Canada, 2015)

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.

Since the band’s inception in 2008, PARALLELS has toured extensively covering thousands of miles bringing their collection of vintage synthesizers and lively HI-NRG rhythms from Toronto to LA, Moscow to Miami, New York to San Francisco and everywhere in between. After a whirlwind 36-date North American tour in 2013, PARALLELS was chosen by NXNE as one of the top 15 Alternative Artists to see at the annual festival in Toronto. The band has also been an electric presence at CMJ, CMW and El Paso’s Neon Desert Music Festival, and has shared billing with internationally-acclaimed artists such as Florence + the Machine, Crystal Castles, A-Trak, Glass Candy, The Juan Maclean and Broken Social Scene.

Their second album, XII, was manifested over the winter months of 2011, during late nights at Marigold Studios in Toronto. Subsequently, XII, was released in June 2012 independently through Marigold Productions, and shortly there after, reached #5 on Earshot’s National Electronic Charts in Canada. The album is a collection of moonlit radiance and sparkling pop, songs that “coo and shimmer with an indoor sunnyness, with the color of iridescent and strobe lights.” (Daytrotter, 2012).

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 LP Visionaries featured on the Kitsune Maison Compilation 8.


"A young Madonna-meets modern electro"
"Their music bangs and then glides, cruising on the soft currents of Holly Dodson's Cyndi Lauper-like vocals. They coo and they shimmer with an indoor sunnyness, with the color of iridescent and strobe lights."
"Crackling with 80s dance sentiment and new-wave electricity, Parallels' brand of sonic joy could be called the new vintage."
