“Aeronaut“ by Parralox marks a new era for the Melbourne based electronic pop act who are moving in excitingly new brighter directions in lead up to their new album.
Having received elevated acclaim in international club culture with their epic dance cover of Radiohead’s classic “Creep” and in the pop music blogoshpere by MTV Buzzworthy, LOGO, Perez Hilton, Elektro Magazine, Popjustice, EQ Music, Cold War Nightlife and Arjan Writes, it’s evident that the Parralox sound continues to resonate deeply into the fabric of the popular music landscape supported by regular radio rotation on Gaydio, This Is Electric and JOY 949 in Melbourne.
The music video for “Aeronaut” is a follow-up visual collaboration between Creative Director, John lbrahim and John von Ahlen after working together on the critically-acclaimed visual “Aeronaut”, a cover of the famous song by The Alan Parsons Project. After endless cups of coffee and many late nights in John Ibrahim’s atelier in Paris, a vision for the clip started to slowly emerge. Almost post-apocalyptic in vision, the “Aeronaut” video captures the essence of reflection, observation and introspection set against the breathtakingly beautiful backdrop of Paris.
Locations for the music video for “Aeronaut” include Hôtel DeVille, Musée du Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, Pont Alexandre III, Petit Palais & Les Invalides.
Accompanying the music video for “Aeronaut” will be music video for the B-Side “Somebody” which was filmed in London as a companion piece to the main release. The locations used for the music video for “Somebody” included Highgate Cemetarty and Hackney Gasworks.
There are also bespoke videos for each of the Remixes, which will be released over April / May.
Parralox recently opened for Erasure on their widely successful“Violet Flame World Tour” where new female vocalists Johanna Gervin and Francine debuted a brand new live show. Parralox also remixed Erasure’s latest singles “Under The Wave” and “Reason”which were released on Mute Records.
