We have a really special release in our hands. A 7” Single arising from the collaboration of two artists who make different sounds, but who have the same references and inclinations. Something like the two sides of the same coin, maybe in its most potent version. And on “So Far Tonight”, a numbered, limited-edition, orange-colored vinyl, Spain’s Lia Pamina and Italy’s Dario Persi do an absolutely marvelous exercise in sixties sounds, with each of them contributing their own vision and qualities.

Dario Persi is the singer from RADIO DAYS, one of the most important power pop and sixties sound groups in Italy and all of Europe. They released 3 albums, 2 EP’s and 2 vinyl Singles shared with bands like THE RUBINOOS and PAUL COLLINS BEAT. They have given more than 300 concerts in Italy, Japan, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, UK, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary and the Czech Republic, with stops at international festivals like Purple Weekend in Leon (Spain), International Pop Overthrow in Cavern Club in Liverpool, Fuengirola Pop Weekend in Málaga (Spain) and Festival Beat in Salsomaggiore Terme (Italy). And our Lia Pamina is building her fan-base, spread out all over the world, even bigger, and is still accumulating a list of the most respected producers and collaborators, release after release.

On this Single, Dario, other members of RADIO DAYS like Mattia Baretta, the regular producer for RADIO DAYS, Marco Alberto Matti and Lia have made an absolutely organic recording, on which the presence of vintage material abounds, in order to maintain a sound that is loyal to their original releases.

They shared the song- and lyric-writing work, and the result of this “So Far Tonight” is a joint effort that gives us fantastic moments that are full of magic. “So Far Tonight” is a song by Dario that could perfectly have been one THE BEATLES’ greatest hits, with a touch of fantastic garage and amazing choruses. Lia Pamina’s entrance opens the palette of colors and gives everything an especially exciting tone of sweetness. “Midnight Walk” is one of Lia’s songs, which has enjoyed a more electric and nervous production, and which breathes a folk spirit the musician from Castellón usually celebrates, but this time takes on a more THE KINKS-like touch, thanks to Dario’s guitars. Marvelous. The B-side opens with a song by Dario. “Time’s Passing By” reminds us more of LOVIN’ SPOONFUL and THE HOLLIES, with a pure touch of pop and ye-ye, and a very Phil Spector inspiration. It’s a solid song. And to close, we have a version of “Il Mio Mondo” that Umberto Bindi and Gino Paoli wrote in 1963 and that Cilla Black later made popular. Our protagonists truly overwhelm us with their performance, with Lia singing in Italian and backed by Dario, with totally unleashed drums and strings that remind us of the best Italian pop from the sixties.

This Single will win over all fans of the sixties sound, fans of both Lia Pamina and of RADIO DAYS, and above all, anyone who is a fan of solid, unforgettable music.

Track Name: So Far Tonight
You are so far away and I feel sad
Writing you this song lying in my bed
And I just want to see you here
I need to touch and kiss you dear
You're so far away, it makes me mad

And I can't wait to see your eyes
We will make love we will feel fine, girl
And I can't wait to hold you tight
We will make love we will feel fine, girl
But you're so far tonight

I'm so far away and I feel blue
I listen to your records in this room
And I feel better for a while
When your music makes me smile
I'm so far away and I feel lost

And I can't wait to see your eyes
We will make love we will feel fine, babe
And I can't wait to hold you tight
We will make love we will feel fine, babe
But you're so far tonight
Track Name: Midnight Walk
I'm walking alone in a summer night, I feel right
When the flying insects are satellites of the streetlights

I can see the light
Coming from that window
I wonder who is there
It was your window

When you went away
On that summer evening
You didn't say goodbye
Oh, how I miss you

I'm walking alone in a summer night, I feel right
When the crikets' music is floating high in the moonlight

Someone on the roof
In this silent midnight
He's looking at the moon
I think I'd like to know him

I'm walking alone in a summer night, I feel right
When the flying insects are satellites of the streetlights
Track Name: Time's Passing By
How many times will I dream of you by night
I can see no reason why you're not fading (away)
You're out of sight and I'm going out of my mind
I can see no reason why you're not fading (away)

Time's passing by
I miss your smile
If you don't mind
I'll be there
Oh Baby

How many times will I dream of you by night
I can see no reason why you're not fading (away)

Time's passing by
I miss your smile
If you don't mind
I'll be there
Oh Baby

Time's passing by
I miss your smile
If you don't mind
I'll be there
I don't care
I'll be there
I don't care
Track Name: Il Mio Mondo
Il mio giorno è cominciato in te
La mia notte mi verrà da te
Un sorriso ed io sorriderò
Un tuo gesto ed io piangerò
La mia forza me l'hai data tu
Ogni volta che hai creduto in me

Tu m'hai dato
Quello che
Il mondo non mi ha dato mai

Il mio mondo è cominciato in te
Il mio mondo finirà con te
E se tu
Mi lascerai
In un momento, io morirò

Tu mi hai dato
Quello che
Il mondo non mi ha dato mai

Il mio mondo è cominciato in te
Il mio mondo finirà con te
E se tu
Mi lascerai
In un momento, così
Tutto per me
Finirà con te
