Parallax Faction are a Glasgow based band. We have just recorded ten tracks for our album and would love to release it in the summer. We also hope to give you access to remixes of the album tracks and a bonus EP compilation.
The album tackles some of the topics that are rarely discussed at dinner parties... Namely politics, religion and the media. Sometimes metophorically and often head on. This album does contain strong language; however, usually to underpin the depth of the emotion portrayed in the subject being tackled as opposed to being 'controversial'.
Parallax Faction have been described as:
"Supersonic weird 80's pub music"
"Very 80's, but in a good way"
We've also been described as sounding quite like:
Magazine, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Portishead and Depeche Mode amongst others.
... and we quite liked that.
All of our material whether it be music, video or photography has been created by us using the ethic of a DIY approach to production. Everything that you see and hear is home made from recording the music to editing the videos.
The video "Snowland" shown above, was filmed in winter at -15 degrees. This song tackles the subject of war, propaganda, spin and lies. The version of the song in the video is currently at "demo" quality.
Further demos can be found on our Soundcloud page:
Your donation will help towards the cost of:
1) Digital Mastering of the album
2) The creation of 300 Limited Edition vinyl LP's
3) The production of the CDs and printing
4) The digital distribution of tracks to digital retailers such as: itunes and spotify.
5) The album launch event, in Glasgow.
We should point out that three of us are over 40, so it would be good to release an album on vinyl before it becomes extinct. We also see this is as a once in a lifetime oportunity to see our work published and distributed to a audience as far reaching as the internet will allow.
Parallax Faction are: Ani Campbell - vocals and percussion, Iain Boyce - keyboards and production, David K Campbell - guitars and bass, and Danni Doonan - guitars.
I would just like to add a personal note, my approach to life is: "You can reach for the stars, but you don't have to step on heads to get there." and "If you stop dreaming, you stop living." I would love to show my daughter that she can fulfill her dreams. If her mum can do it...she certainly can.
Thank you, for taking the time to look at our project.
