It’s Friday – and all of the days that preceded it has driven you to the point of drinking. Let’s admit it though; whatever your choice of drink highly depends on the music you play. Shitty lamestream songs can be a mood-pooper. Fortunately, there is a band called Blind Dancers who made an entire EP of five tracks titled Parallel Time that is meant to unshitty anything and enhance the flavor of whatever you’re sipping (our guess: Fanta*). So sit back and enjoy the smoky, bluesy drops of synths:
The best way to describe Parallel Time is that it is a cocktail of sythpop and blues that has been smoked out with disco air. The vocals of Lu Falen (also producer & sequences) & José Mendocilla (also producer & guitar) float over a rising disco beat and wash you with an influx of serotonin. Despite its dancefloor elements, Parallel Times has a wisp of gloom – but not the boring depressive one. It’s the soothingly, meditative one that allows you to shuffle through your existential thoughts as you would in the shower.
Aside from the vocalists, Blind Dancers is comprised of Alessandra Robertson (bass), Casper Aspiros (drums) and Suemy Nakama (sythesizers). The Peruvian quintet has already made a buzz in the indietronic scene since debuting Parallel Time. They have played at various festivals and have recently gained attention from other international press. They have a show date coming up and you can always follow them on Facebook & Instagram.
