PARA LIA – Gone With The Flow
PARA LIA is by no means a typical indie rock band, starting out from the band’s own name! The duet from Cottbus, Germany, decided to use a Greek word to name their band, to underline their emotional connection with Greece and its people, and to remind them of the sunny summers they have spent nearby a Greek beach (paralia) of the Aegean Sea.
“Gone with the Flow” is PARA LIA’s second album and right from the very first listen you can understand that PARA LIA has done a lot of work for this album. The songs are always guitar driven. But for PARA LIA the guitar is not a typical riff machine. It is a melodic and atmospheric instrument that produces dreamy soundscapes which float around dark pop, psych and dark rock.
“Gone with the Flow” is an album with diversity and personality. It covers a huge spectrum of music taste from the psych pop-rock of the 60’s up to the alternative, indie and even gothic rock of the 80’s and 90’s. At the same time it remains fresh and up to date instead of just being nostalgic.
