“Loveless Adventures” is the third full length album and the most ambitious artistic output in Neon Lies’ discography, which will be released April 20th!!!
Neon Lies started as a synth wave bedroom one man project in late 2015 by Goran Lautar while he was still singing and playing guitar in Modern Delusion and The Celetoids, prominent bands from Zagreb D.I.Y. punk and post punk scene gathered around label Doomtown Records. Soon after that initial period, the project already became a full time one man band adventure.
Since then, Neon Lies toured and played shows endlessly, releasing two albums (“Neon Lies” and “II”) on Black Verb Records and Cosmic Brood Records. Also some limited lathe cut 7″singles for Vinylograph and tracks on numerous compilations, including couple of digital only EP’s for Balkan Veliki and Detonic Records have been released.
“Loveless Adventures” with its 9 tracks is a result of one year making and relentless touring and it’s a perfect blend of minimalistic lo-fi darkwave sound of Neon Lies’ early stages when Goran was revisiting his teenage crush for early minimal synth punk and proto-industrial, and the second album, when he was more into exploring experimentation with repetition, noise, electro and up to date sounds and ideas from European underground dance floors.
This album, recorded and mixed, as always, directly on tape by the man himself, finally brings all of this together in one deeply moving and authentic intimate disclosure of personal loss and gain, euphoria, happiness and sadness. But no matter how much this journey was loveless, it was profoundly lovefull. Dedicated to all the loners and their dealers.
