A throbbing beat. Machines on march. A guitar can be a drill or sing like an angel. A voice like a computer caught in a human throat. A whisper. A howl. Synthesizers; sometimes smooth and glassy, sometimes jagged and bloody. A walk on the shore can easily turn into an apocalyptic landscape depending on your perception.

We Are Parasols started out as a shoegaze band that used electronic production. They released a full-length, Infrastructure, and then an minimal-ambient ep, bite_your_tongue. The idea was that Infrastructure would serve as the structural guide that they would build upon for future releases. That’s not exactly how it worked out. There was a song on Infrastructure,“No Movement”, about an android sex worker. That song, not the rest of the album, was what spawned the musical world of Inertia, the bands sophomore full-length.  

Inertia combines industrial, shoegaze, pop, darkwave, and sci-fi to tell a dystopian, possibly humanist, probably anti-human, story about violence, technology, politics, control, and an android feminist anti-hero known only as a synthetic sexual tasked android body.   

We don’t know exactly how to describe the sound of Inertia but the band lists a range of influences; Bloody Knives, Cocteau Twins, Curve, Depeche Mode, Gazelle Twin, Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy, and Wire.
