“Parallel” is the brand new single by PINHDAR, and it’s the title track of the album produced with Howie B to be released on March 26, 2021

Welcome to another dimension with Parallel, the new PINHDAR album to be released on March 26th, 2021 on CD and all digital platforms. The album was entirely recorded during the lockdown caused by COVID-19 epidemic in the Milan studio owned by the Italian duo, who played everything in full autonomy, and was then co-produced by Howie B, famous Scottish musician and producer who during his career has collaborated with great artists such as Björk, Massive Attack, Tricky, Everything But The Girl, U2 and many more.

Howie B, who returns after several years to support an Italian band after the experiences with Casino Royale, Marlene Kuntz and Ofeliadorme, stated that “Working with PINHDAR over the last few months has been a sonic delight. Working remotely on this project was a big challenge for both myself and the band. This remoteness has given an extra colour to this album. One that is shining“.

The album is anticipated by its title track chosen as first single, available from January 22nd, 2021 after the premiere on SonOfMarketing and XS Noise. Inspired by the text of the song, Parallel videoclip is directed by Samuele Romano and tells through images the awareness of those who feel destined to drag their lives into an increasingly aberrant reality, for not having been able to make different choices at the right moment; on a personal level, but which implies the decisions of the entire society about respect towards our planet.

PINHDAR – a name inspired by the ancient Greek lyric poet Pindar, symbol of imagination and creative flights in parallel universes – are composed by singer and author Cecilia Miradoli and by musician and producer Max Tarenzi, formerly founders of the rock band Nomoredolls and of the international festival A Night Like This. Just like further parallel lines in the direction of the same goal, the two tell us about the genesis of Parallel: “We consider this album our most authentic and painful artistic creation. Its words and atmospheres were born to save us from the dramatic events, including individual ones, that we faced during a surreal 2020. When we finished it, with a strong sense of claustrophobia still on us, we decided to fly it out, away from it all, and then put our music in the hands of one of our favorite producers. So, we tried to contact Howie B and we weren’t hoping for an answer, but the response was quick and enthusiastic. In the end, Howie B not only mixed the songs but even contributed to the production of the record with his sonic manipulations and his immense vibe“.

Parallel is the second record by PINHDAR following the eponymous debut album of 2019, well received also abroad, especially in the United Kingdom, and is the record in which the Italian duo merge dream pop and trip hop in a personal and modern way, with enveloping elegance, captivating rhythms and disturbing gloom, with new wave, shoegaze and indie rock influences. Miradoli and Tarenzi have taken a minimalist approach reducing their sound to what is really necessary. Large space is reserved for the vocal parts, going from melodic singing to whispers and spoken inserts, up to operatic nuances or irregular drifts that recall suggestions between Portishead and Kate Bush. The hypnotic instrumental textures are given by the use of analog synthesizers, electric and acoustic guitars, tom, floor tom and snare drum. PINHDAR speak of loneliness and fears, starting with fear of death. Always with a light of hope.
