Guitar pop & rock with psychedelic & folk-ish tendencies by Ian and Liza Roure, former front persons of NYC powerpop band the Larch ("catchy, lyrically brilliant psychedelic new wave rock” - NY MusicDaily.)

Perhaps existing in the spacetime between Ray Davies & Robyn Hitchcock, Mobile Flight is the debut album by Dada Paradox – it’s a veritable road trip through space and time with stops on dysfunctional family dynamics, witness relocation fails, quantum physics, fans of the apocalypse, riots: past & present and more!

Some adjectives from the kids on the internet on Dada Paradox: “cool & unique”, “retro” “original", “swanky”, “awesome”

Dada Paradox: new tunes live!

Freddy's Bar and Backroom, 627 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY

A chance to play live versions of songs from the album Mobile Flight that's due to be released this year as well as lots of the old Larch faves!

Find out why the kids on the internet are saying things like “cool & unique”, “retro” “original “ & “awesome” about Dada Paradox’s songs and music.



Freddy's Bar and Backroom

Freddy's Bar and Backroom, 627 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY

Dada Paradox's first proper (45 minute set) gig - those familiar with the Larch's music will recognize a lot of the songs - though the arrangements are vastly different!
