Let Me In by Radio Wolf & Parallels

The combination of two standout Toronto Synthpop artists coming together for an evocative film project written and directed by Eric Demeusy (winner of a Primetime Emmy for his work on Stranger Things) sounds a little to perfect to be true.

The combination of two standout Toronto Synthpop artists coming together for an evocative film project written and directed by Eric Demeusy (winner of a Primetime Emmy for his work on Stranger Things) sounds a little to perfect to be true. You might think that. I did. However, artists, Radio Wolf, and Parallels did just that for the upcoming Demeusy sci-fi film Proximity.

Let Me In” the new single from the soundtrack, Proximity—Original Music From the Motion Picture is released today under Lakeshore Records. This isn’t their first time collaborating, and hopefully this is just more of what we have to look forward to. Radio Wolf and Parallels have an intrinsic connection that seems infallible and electric.

Oliver Blair / Radio Wolf

Eric Demeusy (director of the film), shared major scenes with us as it was being edited. We were inspired to customize each song to stand strong on its own, yet collectively deliver the emotional spectrum of the film. We fused celestial sounding electronica with the intimacy of the human voice and organic live guitar, having faith that our music would cohere to the film’s dual sense of otherworldliness and humanity.

The film Proximity was released digitally and On-Demand on May 15th, by Shout! Studios, and depicts a young NASA JPL scientist who is abducted by extraterrestrials. Unfortunately, no one believes his story, and he becomes obsessed with finding proof that leads him on a journey of discovery.

This song came together really quickly which worked out well because we were in a bit of a time crunch. This was the second last song we wrote for the soundtrack, Oliver sent over his idea for the bed track and I loved it immediately – so edgy, lots of attitude. I wanted to get into the headspace of the androids who have one ruthless mission – to find their target, at any cost. So this idea of obsession and the psychological fear induced by being followed really drove the lyric.

I like the opening of the track, the dense bass texture in the low end of the synth arpreggio is dynamite. There is a surreal aesthetic to the brightness that lingers in the tone. Hearing the punch in Holly’s (Parallels) vocal is captivating, and this whole creative energy seems like a through back to that 80s JUNO synth vibe and femininity that rivals Patty Smyth or Barbara Gogan (The Passions).

Let me in, really features these sweet vocal melodies soaring over this rich textured backdrop. The dark vibe in the chording is thick and swells to drive the song forward. Over and over this rhythm becomes hypnotic, while the richness in the melody really plays into this driving pattern.
