Available on Tubi TV, iTunes
'Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury' follows the path of Luxury, a bandfrom small-town Georgia, who began as a ragtag post-punk band and eventually became Orthodox priests. Despite being comprised of members drawn to seemingly in-compatible musical styles, Luxury created a sound that was ahead of its time, especially in the mountains of Northeast Georgia. Musically, they were challenging, blend-ing an aggressive post punk musical attack with deeply melodic, almost feminine vocals, that drew comparisons to Fugazi and to The Smiths, in equal measure. Lyrically, they were provocative, addressing such thorny matters as sexuality and gender and they courted controversy at every turn. Despite, or perhaps, because of the contradictions which existed in their music, they began to draw a crowd. Following the release of their first record, Luxury was poised for success when they suffered a devastating touring wreck with long-term consequences. In the following years, they have continued to make records and three members of the band became Eastern Orthodox priests. Through interviews and archival footage, 'Parallel Love' tells the gripping and poignant story of Luxury and documents the making of a new record, now as priests.
