Watch Rich Aucoin’s dystopian sci-fi music video for “The Other” via Clash; ‘Release’ is out on May 17th

The Blue and Red hero/heroines of the story live in their segregation watching their own versions of the news until they join forces in a rainbow revolution against the tyrant and ruling class.

Melodic indie rockers Para Lia present new ‘Hawk Hill’ single

Melodic alternative / indie rock duo Para Lia have announced their new single ‘Hawk Hill’, which will release on June 14. A special Bandcamp edition also features two additional tracks: ‘Over It (single version)’ and ‘On My Way Home’.

“Hawk Hill is about my love/hate relationship with the small insignificant town of Falkenberg, where I spent my childhood. In German, ‘Falke’ means hawk and ‘Berg’ means mountain. But in fact Falkenberg has no hawks or mountains. The words ‘Hawk Hill Lane’ popped into my head one day while working on a guitar riff – it was a ‘Penny Lane’ moment, reminding me of the street I walked down every day to go to school. The vocals reflect today’s view on a town with the same fate as many small towns in rural East Germany,” says René Methner.
