Maren Parusel hails from San Diego and spits out gobs of synthy goodness reminiscent of some of Metric's early work. It's a groovy, head bopping kind of sound...though apparently it wasn't always this way. In the lead up to her new album Parasel had most of her instruments stolen on a fateful trip through NYC. Still, the mishap challenged Parusel to re-invent her sound, and she recently came out of the studio with her second album Tightrope Walker. She also has a video for the title track, which we're premiering on the site today. Here our tightrope walker is on the run in an Alice In Wonderland kind of setting. Actually, its' looks to be a chintzy amusement parkbut the result is no less exciting. Have a look at the video and be sure to pick up a copy of Tightrope Walker to dive deeper into Parusel's musical world.
