Ribbons of Euphoria | You Don't Care

Αθήνα, Μάιος 2022

Οι Ribbons of Euphoria ανακοινώνουν το νέο τους άλμπουμ!
Το “You Don't Care” ακολουθεί τις πρότερες κυκλοφορίες
“Reaching for the Skies” (2017) και “Ribbons of Euphoria” (2014)
Μέσα σε δύο χρόνια, σε δύσκολες συνθήκες, τελικά ολοκληρώθηκαν οι ηχογραφήσεις
με την συμμετοχή όλων των ιδρυτικών μελών του συγκροτήματος..

Για πρώτη φορά οι Ribbons of Euphoria αναλαμβάνουν αποκλειστικά την παραγωγή
με τον συνθέτη και παραγωγό Νίκο Πουλάκη να τρέχει σχεδόν αποκλειστικά τις διαδικασίες
για την δημιουργία της - μέχρι στιγμής - πιο απαιτητικής δουλειάς του συγκροτήματος..

Οι Ribbons εξερεύνησαν όλες τις κατευθύνσεις, χωρίς περιορισμούς,
επιτρέποντας στην δημιουργικότητα τους να αναπτυχθεί.. “196” είναι το 
εσωτερικό αστείο της μπάντας στο τέλος της παραγωγής, αφού το άλμπουμ 
δημιουργήθηκε χωρίς χρονικούς ή άλλους περιορισμούς, δηλώνοντας συγχρόνως 
την απέχθεια του συνόλου για την κατάσταση που επικρατεί στον κόσμο, 
απευθυνόμενη σε όλες τις γεννεές!

Το “You Don't Care” διατίθεται σε βινύλιο, CD και streaming
από την Experience Music

Inspiration comes through the concepts of everyday life and contemplation. 

Good or bad. This band can be inspired in a constructive way to create with music 
according to the subject and the level of criticism necessary 
for the understanding of the listener

Themes in the texts & Philosophy

Criticism for society & the choices of the common man

Philosophical questions such as You Don't Care? How many more have to sacrifice?

Allegories for oppression

The betrayal of self

Self imprisonment

Life that blossoms after death

It's imperative, have something to say. This first word is the most important. 
The thought that will provoke this first note. After that, it flows like a river...

Although the former is the mechanism for the inspiration of the basic idea, then, 
all the hard work starts. Instrumental parts, instrument roles, orchestration, sound, etc...

As far as the 3rd album is concerned, all compositions & lyrics belong to Nick Poulakis. 
With Haris Botsis assisting in additional orchestrations. From now on, all members contribute 
in composition, with Nick keeping the songwriting & lyrical parts

Nick Poulakis undertakes recording, editing & mixing, while Thanos Karakantas 
assisted in recording and editing with undertaking the mastering of this album

Style of Creating
As you can understand, writing a song is a very personal thing..
One must be within oneself.. After that, is all about team work!
