Electric Litany – “Under A Common Sky” – Live in Athens

Friday October 25th 2019 - Gagarin 205

The Greek-British band returns to Athens and will present their third album, Under A Common Sky

Electric Litany's impressive artistic career begins in 2007, in the British capital. There, Alexander Miaris and Richard Simic experiment with their musical influences in abandoned buildings and give their first live in underground venues of East London. In 2010, Benjamin Prince (synths) is added to Electric Litany and with the release of their first album, “How to Be a Child and Win the War” on that same year, they introduce us to their lo-fi post rock world. Their debut album is welcomed with glowing reviews and is followed by a great European tour on the side of Interpol and Archive.

Καλοδουλεμένος ήχος, μουσικοί πειραματισμοί, σκοτεινή αισθητική και προσεγμένα βίντεο, καθιερώνουν τους Electric Litany στα πιο ενδιαφέροντα συγκροτήματα που έχει αναδείξει η λονδρέζικη σκηνή τα τελευταία χρόνια. Ο Alan Parsons, παραγωγός των The Beatles και Pink Floyd, βλέπει στο ελληνοβρετανικό συγκρότημα τους νέους Radiohead και συνεργάζεται μαζί τους για το δεύτερο album τους, “Enduring days you will overcome”. Η μυσταγωγική ατμόσφαιρα που τόσο μοναδικά καταφέρνουν να δημιουργούν, εντείνεται από τα συγκλονιστικά φωνητικά του Αλέξανδρου Μίαρη και καθιστούν το “Enduring days you will overcome” άξιο διάδοχο του εντυπωσιακού πρώτου τους album. Το 2014, λίγο πριν την Ευρωπαϊκή τους περιοδεία, ο Παύλος Μαυροματάκης προστίθεται στο μπάσο και με αυτόν ολοκληρώνεται το line up του συγκροτήματος.

In the summer of 2017, Electric Litany found themselves in Corfu, Miraris’ home, to work on their new album. Highlighted by the magical sounds of summer evenings but deeply influenced by the humanitarian crisis that has shaken the world, “Under A Common Sky” traverses dark, dystopian paths and is the biggest challenge for Electric Litany so far.

Shortly after the release of “Under A Common Sky”, which is expected in September from One RPM, Apollon Records and Inner Ear, Electric Litany will meet again the Greek audience on Friday, October 25th at Gagarin205, for a unique performance.

A special night with new sounds from a favorite band of the Greeks!
