Greek gods are not the only stories that come out of Athens. Spawned out of the riots that shook the center of Athens last spring, the band Mechanimal formed to create what they call a “drone ‘n’ roll” band. The brainchild of Giannis Papioannou, a pioneer in the Athenian electronic scene, Mechanimal is also made up of band members, Freddie F on vocals and TnG on the guitar. Look for vintage drum beats, monosynths and sub baselines, along with the theatrical voice of lead singer Freddie F. While we haven’t yet been able to hit a live show, we’re told the visuals created by Angeliki Vrettou are not to be missed. Have a listen on their SoundCloud page. We like what we have seen and heard so far!
