Dada Paradox


Nostalgic and retro vibes in a rock/pop song.

Dada Paradox is a duo formed by Ian & Liza Roure that draw inspiration from many sources; they vary from psychedelic pop, rock, and folk of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. From 1998 to 2015, Ian and Liza were also known as the powerpop band The Larch, based in New York. Now, they’re based in the UK. According to Songladder, they are “like a mashup of The Kinks, The Byrds, and The Who.” Their discography is available on Spotify, SoundCloud, and their own website. Dada Paradox’s newest hit is the rock piece, “Summertown Autumn.”

Below is how Dada Paradox described the meaning of this song:

“Summertown Autumn is named for the prim Oxford, UK suburb of Summertown where Ian lived for a short while. While looking up the crime stats for the area one day he noticed that, at that time, shoplifting made up a particularly large percentage of the town’s infractions.”

This vintage-sounding song brings with it the existentialism of the 60s, and it is a sweet thing to hear again. So, stream Dada Paradox’s “Summertown Autumn” to hear this dynamic track.
