Dark Pop Artist Lia Hide Addresses Emotional Struggle With Plato-Inspired LP

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 15, 2022
 – Greek dark pop artist, Lia Hide has just unveiled her highly-anticipated full-length LP, The Missing Fourth Guest.

The Missing Fourth Guest borrows its title from Plato’s ‘Timeaus’ dialogue opening line. The songs talk about the emotional struggles of the recent Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns, human mortality, and the place of the modern man in the universe. 

In ‘Timaeus’ Plato presents an elaborately wrought account of the formation of the universe and an explanation of its impressive order and beauty. The universe as a whole as well as its various parts are so arranged as to produce a vast array of good effects.

Lia Hide‘s songwriting is clean, pop, structured and lyrical, yet bears progressive music elements. Glitch and jazz fragments and orchestral layers, electronic sub drones and industrial noises, that all dress up the clarity of the piano trio: 

Lia Hide‘s influences of Kate Bush and Tori Amos are strongly portrayed, meddling with scents of Massive Attack, Nick Cave,  Cocteau Twins and Radiohead. Her classical music training is evident and blends evenly with Aki’Base’s dark post-wave style and George Rados’ laid-back naturalness.

The Missing Fourth Guest has eight tracks and is available in digital and CD formats.
