BEAUTY NEEDS WITNESS
Many projects try to create a fusion of past and present - and most remain mediocre or fail miserably. But when Ly Nguyen (vocals), Rico Sperl (bass, synths), and Matthias Zimmermann (guitar) founded PAAR in 2016, it quickly became obvious that this project was going to be nothing like all those others.
Running by the name of PAAR, three German artists forged their public personae to one sonic canvas to paint their musical visions in sound. Soaked in
layers of New Wave and post-punk, swathed by modern electronic sounds and experimental punk, PAAR have created a musical body consisting of beats and synths, refined with steady textures of guitar and bass, sanded with distinctive lyrics and vocals.
Between explosions of sharply contoured post-punk riffs, the three-piece allows its synthesizers and drum machines to swell into tsunamis of rhythm, crashing into ears with the perfect complement of Nguyen's deadpan vocals.
