In September, Music Escapades continue to explore and showcase the Greek alternative music scene, proposing two different music ensembles in a unique combination.
S.W.I.Μ. (Someone Who Isn’t Me), in other words Maria Hatzakou, Marilena Orfanou and Gina Dimakopoulou, share with us their love of analogue and toy synths, chaotic guitar, string samples, female vocals and unusual rhythms.
They made their debut appearance at the 16th Francophone Film Festival in Athens, in a live performance of their original music score for the Greek silent film Astero (1929), directed by Dimitris Gaziadis. Their first single, "Anazitisi/Never Find It" was composed especially for the end credits of Athina Tsangari’s latest film, Chevalier (Best Film – BFI London International Film Festival).
Their first live concert was at Winter Plissken Festival in December 2016; in March 2017 they travelled to the SXSW Festival in Austin TX, the world’s biggest Music Showcase festival. In May 2018, they released their latest single, "Gomenaki", whose music video, directed by Alkis Papastathopoulos, had 100,000 views in one month. Both the song and the video were the summer mega-hits. Their first album is stated for release in late 2018.
Lip Forensics, the electronic duo of Zade and Ekelon, love jugular beats and deep sine basslines in recreating the soundtrack of their favorite crime scenes. They came to the fore of the Greek music scene in 2017; they have performed in major Greek music festivals (Release Festival, Up Festival), Athens party events and club nights. On stage at SNFCC, Lip Forensics will perform live to showcase their recent debut album release, Cheiloscopy, with the art direction of Serafim Tsotsonis.
