The cinematic hard rocker spanned the sonic spectrum from pounding drums and raging guitars to ethereal vocal harmonies and kaleidoscopic synths. Harrison sang over this psych-tinged milieu with an edge in his voice that still carried a twinge of his father’s dry Liverpudlian lilt, “Even though you’re present in the moment/ Doesn’t mean that you’re not sad and lonely.”
Harrison also performed another IN///PARALLEL track, “Summertime Police.” The song boasts a similar sonic palate, with Harrison exploring the increasingly gray space between contemporary life and dystopia while also tearing through a hypnotic guitar solo. Harrison also took the opportunity to pay tribute to Tom Petty – who died October 2nd after going into cardiac arrest – taping the initials “TP,” as well as the outline of a broken heart, on the body of his guitar.
Prior to releasing IN///PARALLEL, Harrison has been involved in an array of musical projects including the alt-rock act, thenewn02, the rock supergroup Fistful of Mercy (with Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur) and various film and TV scoring projects. In 2002, he teamed with Jeff Lynne to complete George Harrison’s posthumous album, Brainwashed.
Harrison will embark on a tour in support of IN///PARALLEL November 6th at the Knitting Factory in New York City.
