The light is ending it is dying
I see the day drowning in the sea
All these dead summers
in the eyes of every coming generation
Greek darkwave legends Lefki Symphonia have unveiled their gorgeous new video for the song “Me Mia Kravgi” (translated to With A Scream), from their latest album San Ton Ilio (Like The Sun), out now via Labyrinth of Thoughts Records.
Sung entirely in Greek, the high emotions bleed through their atmospheric soundscapes, bringing in additional psychedelic and progressive elements. The monochromatic video, directed by Melanie Merges-Dimitriou, is a gorgeously rendered dreamscape peppered with performance elements and slow-motion dance, perfectly illustrating the charged energy of Theodoros Dimitriou’s expressive vocals.
Watch the video below:
Lefki Symphonia, comprised of vocalist Theodoros Dimitriou, guitarist Kostas Mihalos, bassist Diogenis Chatzistefanidis and drummer Vangelis Tsimplakis, formed in February 1984 in Athens, Greece, appearing in numerous compilations and European tours during 1986-2000. Their first album, Mistiki Kipi/Secret Gardens, was released in April 1986 by EMI Greece. In 1987 they participated in the Biennal ’87 album with the song I Vrohi Pefti Dinata/The Rain Is Falling Hard. In August 1988 Lefki Symphonia released their second album, Iho Tou Pothou/Echo Of Desire on EMI Greece. Lefki Symphonia was the first Greek band to appear on MTV in 1988 with Kitazodas Piso/Looking Back, filmed in Athens. Over the years the band has endured dark tragedy and brilliant career highs, and it is great to see them still in top form.
