I’m a big fan of The Cure so was very happy when I got this new release sent to me about a month ago. I could secretly listen to it before its release and I can tell you, those are the happy days. Parallax Skies combine hints of new romanticism, shoe-gaze and Brit pop with a big nod to the nostalgia of the alternative 80’s. We can certainly hear all those influences on new new single ‘Strike It Lucky’. The band have sold out shows and played several festivals throughout the North East but deserve a lot more attention with their outstanding sound. ‘Strike It Lucky’ is a lovely, peaceful and somewhat dreamy song that knows how to draw the attention.
Judge for yourself,
