Post Lovers by Post Lovers
Post Lovers, the solo project of singer-songwriter Eleni Karageorgou, were introduced to us in the summer of 2017 with the single “Melbourne / Going Anyway”, one of the collectable singles of the special project “A Distant Victory Singles Club” Post Lovers play short indie folk tunes, blending a-bit-too personal songwriting with playful backing vocals, all set in a 90’s background. In their debut self-titled album Karageorgou generously shares her thoughts with the listener providing a resounding female answer to the male-dominated contemporary songwriting. 13 songs succeed one another naturally without revealing their full potential at once. Masterly crafted tunes, fragile memories and feelings have been transformed into songs that deal with the savagery of love, family and human nature. The album was recorded in the spring of 2018 at Suono studio and was produced by Coti K. The musicians contributing in Post Lovers are: Stavros Georgiopoulos – bass, vocals Danae Eco – keys, percussion, vocals Danae Palaka – drums Nikos Tselios – electric guitar, vocals Eleni Karageorgou – acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keys, vocals Out on black and green vinyl and digital album via Inner Ear. credits released December 10, 2018 Stavros Georgiopoulos – bass guitar, backing vocals Danae Eco – keys, percussions, backing vocals Danae Palaka – drums, percussions, backing vocals Nikos Tselios – electric guitar, backing vocals Eleni Karageorgou – acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keys, main vocals, backing vocals Music & lyrics by Eleni Karageorgou Tracks 4, 8, 12 lyrics by α.
