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, sombre sonic textures, distorted outbreaks and the angelic, yet quirky and energising vocal touches by Etten 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 (SWE) “Pleasingly atmospheric post-pop shudder” – Clash Magazine (UK) “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 (ICE). 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, and are among the very few non-Nordic acts that have performed at Denmark's SPOT Festival. FILM are currently recording a single with Hildur Kristin, the soothing voice of Rökkurró, Iceland’s finest folk-pop outfit. 'Harmur Fuglsins' (Icelandic for Sorrow of the Bird) is the arresting outcome of a collaboration infused by strikingly contrasting geographical and artistic backgrounds, to be released in September on Kimi Records/Inner Ear. Subsequently the band will perform on 8-10 September in Berlin at the international music trade fair Popkomm, followed by a common appearance with Hildur at Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavík on 13-17 October.
