Prins Obi & The Dream Warriors
Prins Obi is back, not alone this time. The self-titled album of Prins Obi & The Dream Warriors is in some sense the debut of the Athenian underground supergroup (with members of Baby Guru, The Voyage Limpid Sound, Chickn, Montero band, A Victim of Society) and at the same time the third complete solo work by Prins Obi (the successor to “The Age of Tourlou”).
The Dream Warriors move to Diskex studio for a while and accompany Prins Obi on a journey from the outside to the inside, in the process of which they are partying, exorcising demons, recapturing romantic moments, loving (again) glam and hard rock, exonerating miserable situations, wandering around greek and foreign psychedelic valleys and delivering a postmodern and yet retro work of songs, live energy and finesse.
Out on limited edition black/clear vinyl (+cd version) and digital album via Inner Ear.
