Paraseed was born in Vienna, Austria, in February 2011, when two enthusiastic and different musicians decided to make their music public together, by combining their differences. The essence was a unique style they called “Electronic Trip-Rock” – a sound between and beyond the boundaries of pop-, rock- and electronic music.
2012 the debut album “Earworms” was released, and Paraseed continued as a band, having several live gigs with four members (keys, gits, drums, bass) and one Laptop on stage. “Earworms” and its containing 14 tracks exhausted parasitically the complete musical spectrum without losing the catchy tune, making every song an individual experience. The listener was sent on a journey of highly contrasting music.
The final gig as a band was in 2013 on Europe’s biggest free outdoor festival, the Donauinselfest.
Soon after that Paraseed split up because of differing interests. Only one founder was left, still having lots of material waiting to be released. However, perfectionism and frustration prevented a sooner release of the second album.
2021 Paraseed resurrected with a new EP. With “Trees Falling“, including a video and two other mixes of that song, Paraseed bounced back into the public eye and ear to continue with its own style, a mix of rock guitars, subtle beats, and electronic sounds. After the insight into the inner world and the inner conflicts, Paraseed now focuses on the outer world and starts a musical wake-up call to point out the plights in the world with the new song.
In 2022 Paraseed finally releases its new album called “Lost Tracks“, including 4 (!) video clips of which two already have been released. The songs on that album have survived up to ten years after their creation until they were finally finished. So they are the “best of the best”, heard over a 1,000 times to ensure that they seamlessly follow the “earworms character” of the debut album, which was released 10 years before. And still – Paraseed stands for good unknown music for good unknown people.
A look ahead to 2023 shows the possibility of even more video material as well as a new single EP. Further surprises are not excluded.
