Parralox - Supermagic
Electro, Synthpop My first encounter with Parralox were their latest EP called 'Isn't it strange' and I really liked that release. Now they are back with yet another EP and this one is for their upcoming album. This EP is called 'Supermagic', will I be as impressed as the last time?

Yes and no. First of all, Parralox have an amazing talent of making synthpop and that talent haven't changed in any way. Everything is really well produced and the lead singer Amii's voice is a sweet mix of pop music superstars and more underground electro acts like Client. The only thing is that the song "Supermagic" is not as addictive as "Isn't it strange" which I'm still humming on now and then. But please, do not despair; "Supermagic" is still a good track.

Part from the five versions of the title track, we also get three remixes, different edits of "Time", "Homecoming" and "Failure". These are all great tracks, "Time" and "Failure" being a bit more calm and slower while "Homecoming" is a pop bash. If you like electropop and synthpop, you should check this out.
