Neon Lies started as a synth wave bedroom one man project in late 2015 by Goran Lautar while he was still singing and playing guitar in Modern Delusion and The Celetoids, prominent bands from Zagreb D.I.Y. punk and post punk scene gathered around label Doomtown Records. Soon after that initial period, the project already became a full time one man band adventure, in terms of relentless touring & recording.

„Raw minimal vicious energy penetrating the very fabric of Goran Lautar’s programming and performance (…) a throw back to the elder’s days when counter-culture and subversive music went head on against the mainstream. The blurred crossroads of the past and present meet and find a common convergence point (…) making this a must have for minimal synth, dark wave and synth punk lovers!“ – Brutal Ressonance

Neon Lies, from Zagreb, Croatia, is under a distinct historical curtain from which this type of music is a perfect escape, a dancepolitik of dissatisfaction with a sharpened steel Eastern European edge. Trebly crashes punctuate minimalist black-clad songcraft, nocturnal nightclub culture abuts deeply rooted urban ennui.” – Cassettegods
