Published Mar 19, 2015Toronto synth-pop darlings Parallels are currently working on their third album — a follow-up to 2012's XII — but in the meantime, Exclaim! is pleased to premiere the group's brand new video for "Age of Consent."
If the name is ringing a bell, that's because the tune is a cover of New Order's 1983 Power, Corruption & Lies track. The accompanying visuals show the band recreating the shoegaze-y song at the Marigold Studios in Toronto, and the footage was shot by local director Howard Wan.
"We've been working on our third album, and found that doing a cover song sets the tone for things to come," said vocalist Holly Dodson in a statement about the clip. "'Age of Consent' was my gateway song into synth music, new wave and New Order, so it's definitely a huge influence on our music."
You can check out how their sound has been shaping up by catching the band live at the Rivoli in Toronto on March 27. Until then, though, give Parallel's take on "Age of Consent" a watch in the player below.
