FILM’s compelling cinematic soundscapes revolve around nihilistic urban settings and inspire celluloid fantasies.
The work of this Athenian avant-garde four-piece as it morphs into a nebulous dark-wave amalgamation of post-punk and electronic facets, resembles the mystique of a lost, enigmatic motion picture. Their flickering sequences, somber sonic textures, angelic vocal touches and distorted outbreaks draw inspiration directly from the iconic legacy of FILM’s universally-acclaimed compatriot Vangelis.

Their latest collective effort ‘Persona’ is a commanding oeuvre encapsulating an artistic vision of rare grandeur and amplitude, which – along with their staggering live performances – was hailed in unison by various respected international music media:

“Clear heritage managed so smart and lovingly on stage that it could turn into a cliché, instead it becomes exciting” – Gaffa.se

“Pleasingly atmospheric post-pop shudder” – ClashMusic.com

“Visually strong expression” – Gaffa.dk

“Exploring the avant-garde of pop music on their latest album ‘Persona’ makes FILM an exhilarating addition to the scene of art-rock” – Gogoyoko.com

FILM enjoy a leading status amongst the Athenian indie scene and have enviable live credits with support slots for behemoths such as The Cure, New Order, Iggy & the Stooges, and The Flaming Lips. They have extensively toured Europe with gigs in the UK, Switzerland, Spain, Slovenia and the Netherlands. They are among the very few non-Nordic acts that were invited to perform at Denmark’s SPOT Festival as well as being invited for a showcase appearance at Popkomm in Berlin.
