Parastatic release new single “St Mary”
on 13th November
“Krautrock is undergoing something of a resurgence right now but few have dragged it in to the 21st century quite as well as Parastatic. Fusing those wonderful, warm analog synth sounds with a modern dance sensibility.” Echoes and Dust in The Guardian
“Total obliteration of the senses guaranteed.” NME
“Parastatic infuse their spirit of experimentation with an irresistible sense of directness.” DrownedinSound
“’Recall Fade Return’ is a damn fine album, an album of diverse colour and texture, skilfully woven into a warm expansive soundscape.” Louder Than War
“The kind of propulsive, joyous, trancelike music that bundles up the likes of Neu! The Orb and Spiritualized into one pulsating whole…a cloud-scraping slab of motorik bliss which feels like the band have managed to bottle the essence of the sun coming up in the morning.” The Crack
“Epic… a strange hybrid of Spiritualized, Prog and New Order.” Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music)
“Prog on the Tyne.” Mark Radcliffe, R2/6 Music
The single “Saint Mary” is inspired by the band’s late night explorations of the North East coastline and in particular Saint Mary’s island, home to one of Tyneside’s iconic landmarks, Saint Mary’s lighthouse.
Jon, Neil and Rachel dreamt up the modern day mythology of Saint Mary and the island she presides over, where the broken hearted and lost souls make pilgrimage to seek solace and ultimately reconciliation with their pasts. The accompanying video follows one such pilgrim on his struggle to reach the island using an ancient map inscribed with Viking runes.
