Golden Parazyth Short Info

Not many acts can boast warm-up gigs for such wildly different musicians as Underworld and Lana Del Ray – but that’s the case with Golden Parazyth, a music project from Lithuania that’s been around since 2006. These concerts are worth mentioning (so are their gigs with Hurts, Nicolas Jaar, Rhye, SOHN, We Have Band, FM Belfast and GusGus, for example) because they are a reminder of how wide and far-reaching Golden Parazyth’s appeal can be. It’ truly extraordinary – electronic pop delivered with the intensity that is typical of rock’n’roll and sound elements that clearly show alternative rock influences, drawing crowds of hipsters, old ravers, drunken rock festival goers and indie kids.

It all started as lead singer GP’s solo project, but nowadays he is joined by his partner in crime K@. You can see them doing push ups before the gigs – no wonder, as these men do look possessed on stage and their energetic live performances have to be seen to be believed.

Emerging practically out of nowhere in 2005, a year later Golden Parazyth released his debut album Apartment of Steel which is now considered a cult classic. Underground fans hailed it as best electronic album of the decade. Special themed parties and unconventional songwriting didn't go unnoticed and soon he (GP) was taking calls from major Lithuanian labels. Sophomore albums All The Truth About Blue Monkeys and Long Way Home increased the artists radio exposure, pleased hip crowds and brought new listeners to table.

“They're really onto something” - that was how Adam Anderson (a half of the well known British duo Hurts) described Golden Parazyth after witnessing the band's performance. The story goes that in 2013 both Hurts and Baltics music experts voted these Lithuanians the most worthy to warm up for the British stars during their November trek of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Having con-quered almost every live venue and festival in Lithuania, Golden Parazyth caught the attention of foreign bookers – they have succesfully performed across the Baltics, touring clubs and festivals in France, England, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg as well as countries of their region – Poland, Estonia, Latvia and played shows in Europavox (France), Waves Vienna (Austria), Tallinn Music Week (Estonia) and Moscow Music Week (Russia) showcase festivals.

2015 saw a symbolic end of a chapter – the band toured across Lithuania with a “best of” setlist and released a mammoth two and a half hour, 32 tracks long compilation of their work Looking Backward, Moving Forward.

Moving Forward is exactly what they’re doing now – their latest interesting project was an international music, dance and puppet theathre performance theSYSTEM, for which Golden Parazyth provided a live soundtrack – both in Prague and Vilnius.

With falsetto vocals and clapping beats, In The Night is just one of many interesting tunes that Golden Parazyth have to offer – a version of this, by the way, got a remix treatment from German electronic music maestro Timo Maas.

Killing the dance floor with synthetic beats, looped guitar samples and uplifting vocals, GP (Giedrius Širka) and Keta (Aurimas Vilkišius) are now on the watch list of quite a few festivals in the region. Not bad for a band that's truly difficult to describe.

"Each day is like a new song, which requires the best performance“, they finally offer. Erm, thank you very much. Nevertheless, you could do way worse than check out their albums and EPs.
