Independent rock super group In Parallel debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band — composed of Lance Black, Jesse Fine, Ryan Parrish, and Mark Nash — debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Leave It With The Ghost‘ Wednesday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming EP Fashioner, which is scheduled for release Sept. 4 through Wiretap Records.
The video places the song’s lyrics against what is meant to be a snowy backdrop the also features snow-covered streets in an undisclosed city. The song’s subtle, plodding musical arrangement adds to its interest as its guitar line is eerily reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘The Day The World Went Away’ throughout its verses. Even as the song progresses, its arrangement changes slightly, but still boasts a certain similarity especially to songs featured on Nine Inch Nails’ 1999 album The Fragile.
The song’s lyrical theme infers a message of hope, right from its lead verse, which states, “Minds play old tapes/We’ll never be the same/Leave it with the ghost/Limbs bend/Bones sweat/We aren’t broken yet/Leave it with the ghost.” Those two short, simple lines seem to send a message that we as people need to leave the past in the past, considering ghosts are associated with the past, in literary senses. The song’s second verse, which states, “Dead weight/Light fades/Released and blown away/Leave it with the Ghost/Dark steps press down/Leading us underground/Leave it with the ghost/leave it where the ghost waists.” That mention of dead weight and light fading could be a literary reference to, again, the past. Dead weight is something that needs to be released. The fading light is another allusion to something in the past, like fading memories. The song’s third verse follows in similar lyrical fashion as that of the song’s lead and second verse.
