Lolek’s highly anticipated new album is coming out early May from Exostis and is entirely Greek-speaking. Two years after his debut album “Alone”, Lolek continues on is lonely path, but it seems a lot has changed since then…
When the waltzes were locked as shelters of romanticism and the introduction entitled «Alone» was over, one was sure: whatever would follow would be neither romantic nor innocent. And if for some reason we are inured to stories supported by a myth and acompanied by words soaked in poetic formalin to keep… And if this is the only defence of art against its humiliating equation with the real and the immaterial… Then it is defeated by fighting stance.
No myth is following «Ahinos» (Sea-urchin). And no strange story has coincided with its creation. No political act is expressed through bouncing in the refrain and no love is satisfied by a cinematic finale. The words are simple and the music just disobedient.
“Ahinos” (Sea-urchin) comes to ally with reality, to collide with the roles we have undertaken and with everything we have created to be protagonists in, whether it is called hope and future, or grief and peculiarity, or loves and flowers.
