Para Lia

Based in the city of Cottbus near Berlin, Germany, Para Lia is the newly launched indie / alternative rock project of German musician René Methner, who plays all instruments.
The ten songs on the Para Lia debut album 'Soap Bubble Dreams' weave a tapestry of earthy guitars, analogue synths and a distinctive heart felt lead guitar sound that flows seamlessly from the soul to the hand. With the conception of 'Soap Bubble Dreams' Para Lia are celebrating the indie/alternative rock sound of the 90’s along with with stylistic elements of 80’s dark wave and psychedelic prog rock. The chorus is the trademark of their songs,. Renés vocals stand forefront, enhanced with the arrival of the ethereal splendour of Cindy’s voice. This makes 'Soap Bubble Dreams' an album filled with melodic-atmospheric, punchy distinctive sounds, in the best way retro; but with a good measure of freshness and originality.
All these various combinations are the reasons why demo versions of songs like 'The Man Who Went Away' get played on indie rock radio stations in the US, UK and Australia. Why 'Higher and Away' was in the The Belter Radio UK Indie Charts for a couple of weeks and why songs like ‘Who Gets Fooled Again’ are highly acclaimed on Soundcloud. Find / Follow:
