We've Moved! 

Dada Paradox have been officially operating from our new head quarters in Headington, Oxford in the UK since late February 2018.

Questions, questions, questions: if you are wondering why there is a shark sticking out of a house in the graphic below, click and ye shall find...


New Graphic for New Tune 

Made a new collage that goes with one of the new Dada Paradox tunes we've been working on; inspired by a secret bar we were invited to while on holiday in Barcelona this is called La Vaca (Punk Rock Dream)

Progessive Retro-Pop: A Minifesto 

Progressive Retro-Pop: Blending sounds from 60s & 70s pop & rock music with lyrical barbs, irony, sideways hooks, and unexpected twists in song form, melody & subject matter.

We PRPs like our soaring melodies and tuneful hooks but we want our concepts and irony too...
