NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 034

Lia began singing after hearing her favorite singer, Astrud Gilberto, who, along with Claudine Longet, Margo Guryan and Blossom Dearie, influenced her vocal style. This single is one of those strange and random happenstances which results in little gems, in which the only motivation is a passion for music. Lia Pamina is a vocalist and songwriter from Castellón who previously released her songs online. That’s how her music found its way to the Texas songwriter, musician and producer, Robbie Leff (Johnny Winter, Alice Cooper, THE CRABS), who suggested they record some songs over the summer via email.

The idea for this EP comes from Lia’s contact with another great producer, Roger Gunnarsson (PUSHY PARENTS, NIXON, FREE LOAN INVESTMENTS, THE GARLANDS, THE HAPPY BIRTHDAYS), who suggested that Lia record some of his own songs. She recorded Roger’s "How Come I” and she wrote lyrics for the Spanish version, “Cómo Es”, both songs produced by Roger along with Le Prix (PUSHY PARENTS, Kylie Minogue, Sally Shapiro), creating a link between eurodisco rhythms and dream-pop textures.

Lia’s work with Robbie Leff completes the EP. First with a cover of "Kingdom Of Heaven”, written by Powell St. John and originally recorded (as were many of his songs) by THE 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS. It’s a curious mixture that leaves us with a juicy piece of pop bathed in swirls of psychedelia. The other song has a bit more history attached (a common thread in the young career of this singer). Her recordings with Leff came to the attention of Terry Wilson (ERIC BURDON AND THE ANIMALS), who offered to work with Lia and Robbie, and suggested she record the song "Whirlwind" written by John "Rabbit" Bundrick, longtime keyboard player for THE WHO and principal musician of the cult film, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. The song had previously existed only on a demo recorded by Terry’s wife, singer Teresa James (THE RHYTHM TRAMPS). This version’s delightful sixties vibes evoke thoughts of THE BEACH BOYS and HARPERS BIZARRE, along with production styles reminiscent of Phil Spector and Burt Bacharach. All these big names came together to form this track: Rabbit on keyboards, Terry on guitars and bass, Teresa’s background vocals and Robbie Leff’s own production.

This 7" limited edition single contains an incredible piece of history, both old and new, but mostly a handful of absolutely delicious songs spun by the delicate voice of Lia Pamina, a name that will undoubtedly gain even more attention here at Elefant Records.

Track Name: How Come I
You tore down the walls around me
You told me things no one told me before

You said you were glad you found me
How come you don’t talk like that anymore

You never tried to please me
You made my life look easy
And I’m the fool who stayed in love

How come I
Still want to love you
How come I don’t regret

How come I
Still want to know you
Oh oh
I can forget

I’ve made up my mind, you told me
I just can’t give up more for you
If you had eyes you’d see me
If you had a heart I’d break it too

I gave my love, you missed it
You stole my time and kisses
And I’m the fool the stayed in love

How Come I...

You didn’t want to stay
I gave it up today
You acted like a child
I cried behind my smile

You just went away
You just went away
Don’t wanna follow you
But I will follow
Track Name: Kingdom Of Heaven
Here you are at my place within your glistening eyes
I’m watching your reactions as the thing within you cries
And I’m bringing you this message ‘cause I think it’s time you knew
That the kingdom of heaven is within you
Yes, the kingdom of heaven is within you

The incense and the candles and the colors on the wall
Your image stands reflected as a princess come to call

Your suspicions I’m confirming as you find them all quite true
And the kingdom of heaven is within you
Yes, the kingdom of heaven is within you

Through the stained glass windows moonlight flashes on the choir
And splashes on the altar in glows of liquid fire
Then it bathes you with its glory and you begin life anew

And the kingdom of heaven is within you
Yes, the kingdom of heaven is within you
Track Name: Whirlwind
Whirlwind, I’m in a world spin
And I don’t know where I’m going
In this whirlwind, in a world spin
I hope it blows your heart to me

Sometimes in the winter
When the birds are never singing
It makes me wonder, if in the summer
It will spin you back to me

Someday you will fly right straight into my heart
That day you will forever be in my arms
And I’ll never let you blow away, by the

Whirlwind, and the world spin
We will hang on to each other
We’ll be ready, we’ll be steady
And we will blow that wind away

Whirlwind, I’m in a world spin
And I don’t know where I’m going
In this whirlwind, in a world spin
I hope it blows your heart to me
Whirlwind, whirlwind, I’m in a whirlwind
Track Name: Cómo Es
La tarde pasó deprisa
Mi libro cerré y en la calle te vi
Brillaba el neón, tu risa
Y yo decidí estar cerca de ti

El tiempo te ha cambiado
Tu corazón se ha helado
En ti no hay sitio para mí

¿Cómo es que aún quiero tenerte?
Y tus manos sentir
¿Cómo es que soy persistente?
Oh, oh, tengo que huir

Contigo estaré, dijiste
Esa noche de abril que no pude olvidar
Perdí la razón, es triste
Te di lo mejor que yo te pude dar

Te di mi amor, mis sueños
Los echaré de menos
Contigo todo se esfumó

¿Cómo es que aún quiero tenerte?
Y tus manos sentir
¿Cómo es que soy persistente?
Oh, oh, tengo que huir

Sentada en ese bar
Nadie con quien hablar
Sonaba tu canción, rompí pronto a llorar
No me olvidarás, no me olvidarás
Pero yo sí lo haré
Y tú llorarás
