Two Years after the release of “11527” on tape, the Greek industrial/electro project Πύργος Αθηνων aka Athens Tower is releasing the new single-track “Ιπποδάμεια Θλίψης” (Hippodameia of Sadness).

Πύργος Αθηνών was formed in 2021, drawing inspiration from Greek poetry, classical Athens, loneliness, existentialism, and human critique. Noticeably the duo avoids visualizing their music and does not use social media. The two anonymous members recite poetry instead of singing, “striving to give voice to the city itself and imparting a human dimension to the impersonal metropolis”.

They have released the album “11527” cassette album in 2022 (including remixes by the Greek electronic projects Blakaut and Alpha Sekt) through Soil Records, preceded by the EP “210” in 2021. Due to their anonymity, they do not perform live.

Here’s their EP to check out from 2021.

And this is the full album released in 2022.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
