In times of general recession and uncertainty it is so wonderful and hopeful to discover bands and musicians that truly deserve to be explored and renew your faith in music. The Athens , Greece-based band “Tango with Lions” fall into this category and with their second slow , powerful and groovy album , they are bound to steal your heart and impress you.
Tango with Lions were officially formed in 2007 by Katerina Papachristou , a young musician who as bassist and singer has collaborated with many English speaking bands of the Greek indie/alternative scene. Since then, they have grown to be a band with a stable line-up and rather distinctive , moody , deeply haunting music vibes.
Their debut album, “Verba Time” was released in 2010 and has received enthusiastic reviews while the song “In A Bar” has broken a record of views on YouTube. Their highly anticipated second album, “A Long Walk” was out in spring 2013 and is nothing less than impressive.
Digging into dark thoughts , floating in a sea of love and memories and getting lost in dreamy landscapes , Tango With Lions transport you into their world with the power of their music and Kat’s emotional , sultry vocals. The carefully executed arrangements and instrumentation find the way to wrap around the hauntingly beautiful voice of their lead singer and you become part of the stories their songs have to tell. There’s a pensive, rather mellow and sometimes relaxed vibe to their music with occasional bursts that resemble the course of your emotions.
If you are looking for an album worth listening to and long for an interesting journey to new, uncharted waters , discover them and let your ears dance to their tango. Chances are , you will really enjoy their breathtaking soundscape 🙂
