The Prototypes

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Merely listening to Paris’ The Prototypes requires a number prerequisites, and if “(Don’t You) Forget About Me” doesn’t ring any bells with you, I’m afraid it might be a lost cause. The opening notes on “Je Ne Te Connais Pas” reminds me of something from The Breakfast Club, gutted, renovated and rejuvenated. As the current wave of electronic rock continues to evolve its becoming increasingly interesting to see how much of the old 80’s keyboard and synth can be used before a band loses any hope of having a unique sound. The Prototypes borrow just enough to sound familiar, but thankfully rock hard enough to make you forget all about the 80’s.
