Paranoid Image was created by pianist, bassist, and songwriter / composer Christopher Malone and vocalist / lyricist Sara Geller in late 2016. Christopher and Sara met in 2015 as members of the industrial band Scifidelic. As a couple, they became very interested in Latin dance and Latin dance music. They decided to create an all-acoustic band that featured the driving rhythms of the industrial/alternative music they played and infuse it with the Latin sounds they loved - with creative, beautiful melodies and deep lyrics.
They have grown their band to 7 members. In January 2018, they released their first single, "Keep Your Heart", an acoustic version and interpretation of the same song by TV on the Radio, a band in which Christopher's brother is a member.
In June of 2018, they released their first 10-song album called "Burning Paint". Everyone always asks what Paranoid Image's genre is. Once you hear this album, you will quickly see why that is a tough one to answer. So far, the best we can come up with is "Acoustic Alternative".
