Parabola West is a song-writer out of Auckland, New Zealand.

Her music strikes for a truly balanced alchemy of melodies, groove and emotion, as she borrows from the vast vernacular of contemporary music to create something meaningful and unique.

Her latest single “Fire” kicks off with a dramatic strings section blending in with an elegant and understated electronic background. Particularly, the stringed instruments have an almost lyrical and vocal quality to their melodies, and it almost feels as if the songstress was duetting with them, making for a truly unique combination. Parabola’s vocals echo the outlandish and new age aesthetics of influential experimenters such as Björk or Tori Amos, but her song-writing is still anchored to those comfortable, familiar intangible elements that make listeners truly connect with music on a direct and instinctive level.
