Birbas – Dandelion


After years of absence from discography, Panos Birbas returns with his third personal album, Dandelion, which is out now on United We Fly. The singles “Bloom” and “November” have already opened a window for the audience to peak into the world of “Dandelion”, a world of bittersweet stories where the dance of the “thief” in the wind lurks all around. A dance that secretly invites us to get up from our chair and choose light over darkness. ”Dandelion” is musically arranged by the artist himself and is based purely on the principles of songwriting, with a mix of influences starting from the 60s and ending in the dreamy melancholy of Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Madrugada and Tindersticks. An album musically clean and organic, with a particularly cinematic mood dominated by brass, strings, synths and piano.  ”Dandelion” is also defined by the participation of three outstanding voices of contemporary music (Rosey Blue, Lola Yannopoulou and Etten), while the contribution of Yiannis Christodoulatos and Thanasis Alexandris in production, mixing and mastering is critical for the result. ”On ‘Dandelion’, I tried to pull back the curtain, to reveal myself as raw and clear as possible, I tried to write about what I love the most, using all my favourite music as the ideal vehicle to carry these words.” (Panos Birbas) Panos Birbas is a professional songwriter, arranger and music producer, born in Athens in 1983. In 2013 he released his first personal LP under the title “Mournful” (FM records) and in 2015 the single “Lullaby”. In 2017 he released his second personal LP under the title “Finchley Road” (Violins productions), which meets great acceptance. In 2020 he released the single “City Streets” as well as an acoustic version of “Dead Bones” and in 2021 the single “Pull Me Out”.  Since 2015 he has been the frontman of Dustbowl and together, they have performed live as an opening act for Dream Syndicate, Mark Lanegan, and more.
