Greek Avant-Pop artist Lia Hide returns with her new single ‘Uterus Will’ taken from the brilliant new album ‘The Missing Fourth Guest’. Following a stint signed to EMI-Universal, working with a number of acclaimed producers including multiple Grammy award winner Adam Ayan, the Athens-based artist has established herself as one of the most exciting names on the Art-Pop scene. Once again showcasing her strikingly unique blend of Pop, Electronica and Jazz, Lia’s three-piece band have signed with Conch Town Records and are releasing some of their most exciting music to date.
‘Uterus Will’ sees Lia bring her Jazz influences to her synth heavy, Alternative-Pop sound with twinkling piano, moving bass lines and shuffling beats under Lia’s spoken word vocals. Building with layers of synths and the introduction of and intoxicating brass solo, this is Lia at her creative best. Unafraid to experiment and push the boundaries of her music, this is another demonstration of Lia’s impeccable talents as a songwriter and performer.
Lia describes ‘Uterus Will’ as: “A spoken word narrative, weaved in a soliloquy. Lover to lover, random thoughts on death, loss and life. A woman who has yet to be a mother. A daughter who lost her father-in-law. Cars driving fast and halting abruptly in the illuminated night streams. Lego bricks and the fear of dementia. An electro-pop dark song, reminiscent of 80s Anne Clark, dressed up with jazzy bass and trumpet solos and wrapped up in a Tori Amos fragile ending.”
Lia has studied classical piano, operatic singing, music technology, advanced harmony and songwriting giving her a vast knowledge of music theory which informs her immense creativity and innovative ideas. Having played a number of European tours including the most recent tour in 2019, a 40 day venture with 28 shows across 10 countries, Lia has appeared in a whole host of tastemaker press including CLOUT, XS Noize, Wonderland, Purple Melon, Readers Digest, Elculture.gr and LIFO as well as playing support for and collaborated with a number of top international and Greek artists including: Tricky, Joseph van Wissem, Anneke van Giersbergen, Kadebostany, KBHTA, Keep Shelly in Athens, Molly Nilsson and Kovacs.
The upcoming new 8-track album ‘The Missing Fourth Guest’ was produced by Lia Hide, mixed by Ian Shaw at Warmfuzz Productions, and mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering, UK.
