Heffron Drive“Parallel”
Record Label: TOLBooth Records
Release Date: March 25, 2014
Reviewed By: Kathleen Carpo-Garcia

“Parallel” is the first studio release from Heffron Drive in over five years. Singer Kendall Schmidt had been selected as a member for Big Time Rush in 2009 when Heffron Drive was just starting to take off, which has put off any releases from the group until now. While the boyband is currently taking a break, Kendall took the opportunity to go back to join forces again with guitarist Dustin Belt to release a new single. Along with a live band, Heffron Drive first performed “Parallel” at a SXSW showcase in March.

The song starts with a mellow acoustic guitar and soft vocals. It is soon met with a beat that drops as the chorus kicks in. After the chorus, the guitar is solo again, this time with a faster tempo. Timing in this song is well played, starting slow at first then speeding to build up to the chorus. It is clear that there are some EDM influences here (Kendall has made it no secret that he is a big fan of the genre). The song has the right blend of rock with just a touch of dance.

Counting stars, laying in the grass
Side by side, your head in my shoulder
We talk a lot about nothing much
With every breath we are getting closer
Parallel in this universe
Do we light up our hearts just to watch’em burn?
Parallel, I will cross the lines.
Cause maybe tonight
The stars align!
The stars align!
What if I’m the one who was there for you
Was all along right in fron of you
Just didn’t see it, it was there all the time
Yeah, feel it tonight, yeah
The stars align!
The stars align!
I take the thoughts out of your mind
And put the pieces into my puzzle
Everything I wanna say about you
Is more than enough to write a novel
Parallel in this universe
Do we light up our hearts just to watch’em burn?
Parallel, I will cross the lines.(c’mon put your hands up)
Cause maybe tonight…
The stars align!
The stars align!
What if I’m the one who was there for you,
Was all along right in fron of you
Just didn’t see it, it was there all the time
Yeah, feel it tonight, yeah
The stars align!
Like rope around, around the moon,
We’re pulling close whatever it takes to be with you
Maybe tonight
Maybe tonight the stars align.
The stars align!
What if I’m the one who was there for you
Was all along right in fron of you
Just didn’t see it, it was there all the time
Yeah, feel it tonight, yeah
The stars align!
The stars align!
The stars align!
