Official Press Release

After two albums exploring the dystopian universe of their city in crisis, the Athenian group Mechanimal delve now into the outskirts of their hometown, away from the sociopolitical fragmentation of the Greek capital, inside a deep and prolonged silence of the mountain forests surrounding Athens.
“Delta Pi Delta” started with a new lineup, erasing the events of a rather tense and tough past, focusing on nature as a means of escape from the modern depression of urban life. This time with female vocals, featuring lead singer Eleni Tzavara (formerly of Film and Etten), electric guitars by Tassos Nikogiannis and Kostas Matiatos, and electronic programming by Giannis Papaioannou, Mechanimal started recording the backbone of their new album during the spring of 2015, while final editing and mixing took place during August 2015, in an isolated room by some faraway beach.
The result of these new recordings is 8 new songs plus 2 instrumentals which will be included as extra tracks in the digital version of the album. Ten new tunes captivating the mystery that lies beneath a quiet life outside a big city. The group’s own hybrid blend of mechanical beats, shoegazing guitar drones and repetitive electronic patterns, shapes now a different perspective that embraces the strangeness and the atmosphere of dreamy landscapes around Athens. The materializing of these silent places into a conceptual sound revealed a new process, which helped the group transform their vision into a tangible medium.
The symbolical acronym title “Delta Pi Delta” is referring to the lyric “giving names to stars”. As a whole it represents the existential journey of any two-footed animal. In this journey, dreams reveal desires and fears that we’re not consciously aware of, but play an important part in consciously or subconsciously helping us become better at dealing with life.
“Delta Pi Delta” is dedicated to the loving memory of Greek artist and painter Nicholas Liber (1956 – 2013), a long-term friend of the band.

Song To The Sirens

Now that clubbing days are over
And all your friends are lost
You’re praying to the sirens
Save you at any cost

I’m sorry you’re in pain now
I’m sorry it was me
That left you in a nightmare
Of purple ecstasy

Time is the fourth dimension
That will ignore our needs
A mess of blood and sorrow
We are all on our knees

Nothing is happening here
The schools are empty now
Once, how this was a kingdom
Now it’s a broken home
Nothing is happening here
It’s getting pretty late…

I’m praying to the sirens
I’m seeing through your eyes
Look at your glorious lifestyle
Oh, how it falls apart!

Lyrics & music: Giannis Papaioannou

Ode To Europe

Ode To Europe 

Memories designed to fade
Ears dripping sounds of grey
Some more real than desire
Echo will set us all on fire

As the night is full of screams
Words like moths beat on the screens
All men born with wings that sing
Mother Europe trapped in dreams

Charming stories, open wounds
The muted light of sacred woods
One thousand years lost in a glance
Midnight drifters of the boulevards

Pulsing fragments, inner life
Trading time for a smile
Silent paths to healing scars
Love will die amongst the brightest stars

Tiny worlds of memories
Whispers hanged on violins
Some more real than desire
Echo will set us all on fire

Sing my verses of youthful crimes
On breaking dawns with bitter suns
In hidden places such as this
Every rebel deserve a kiss

So, keep your love for a rainy day
When all the flowers will be thirsty again…

Lyrics & music: Giannis Papaioannou
