Grey Skies – Year

20.00

Greek musician Elias Smilios presents his first release as GreySkies – a project that sets out to create wonderfully bent landscapes of mysterious worlds. YEAR was released on December 2020 and is a fully realised concept throughout its presentation from the music to artwork and video pieces that accompany its release. Inspired by misty scenes of nature, YEAR creates a transcendental atmosphere that echoes Smilios’ escapist tendencies. His musicianship has developed from his involvement in the local indie scene of Thessaloniki in Greece. As Grey Skies the artist transitions into a more blurred and beautiful world of organic ambient, blending electronic and analogue synthesis with his playing of guitar and bass alongside the alto saxophone talent of Thanasis Sampaziotis Macubert. The sax is used with a centering fluidity amongst intricately layered elements lifting intensity along with skittering IDM inspired beat patterns throughout YEAR.
