The IndieFunda Project

The indiefunda project is a collaboration of independent artists around the globe, who want to create a platform where an independent artist will be able to have financial aid directly from his/hers audience. Check it out!

May Roosevelt

Influenced by the very reverend trinity of Bach, Björk and Klaus Nomi, May Roosevelt is an extraordinary thereminist, composer and producer with a sense for good, old-fashioned drama. Her classical arrangements will give you the shivers (or, at the very least, remind you of movies that gave you the shivers), with nods to early industrial or electronic music and a passing resemblance to the god of thunder behind a theremin. Like many people, she got into music via her first Casio synth as a kid. If her knack for otherworldly sounds is anything to go by, that Casio must have been possessed by some very restless and musical ghosts.


2L8 is the project of K the Clown and a team of collaborators and musicians based in Thessaloniki, North Greece.

Berlin Brides

The Berlin Brides’ sound is a hybrid of electro, punk and powerpop. They were founded on September 2007 by Natasha Giannaraki, lyricist and lead singer and Marilena Orfanou, keybordist and composer who gives the band its electronic identity. Conceived in Berlin and formed in Greece, they are reinventing the music scene in Athens with their caustic lyrics and their combustible live performances.

Electric Litany

The story of the band started, when Alexandros and Richard met in London. Alexandros moved from Corfu to London, while Richard was leaving Devonshire for London in search of forming a band of his own. Duane was the last member to join the band, since he was found by Alex and Richard through an ad. Their first rehearsals were taking place in some pretty unusual places, like abandoned and derelict buildings.

New Zero God

New Zero God is a Greek punk/post punk rock band formed in 2006. Their popularity in Greece may be due to the veteran musicians who make up the band; as most Greek rock fans were already familiar with Mike Pougounas and Averkios Hadjiantoniadis from The Flowers Of Romance, which is considered a legendary Greek gothic rock group.

Bokomolech is a band from Athens, Greece.

The members met sometime in 1991 in the National Technical University of Athens. They started making an impression on Indie audiences in 1993, after having played at the Indie Free Festival.

Their name comes from a Ukrainian physician, Alexander Alexandrovic Bogomoletz, who came up with a drug of the same name sometime in the 1950’s, supposedly postponing the aging of cells in the human body.

Their debut LP was “Xero” (1995 - Lazy Dog Records, an indie label from Salonica).
They later signed with Hitch-Hyke and released the E.P. “Insect (songs)”. Steve Albini was impressed by their music and invited them to Chicago to work on a record together at his own well-known studios “Electrical Audio”. The product of this collaboration was a double L.P., “Jet Lag”. Steve and Shellac fitted an extra day in their European tour that autumn, so that they could play in Athens with Bokomolech.
Their next release was another E.P., entitled “Slowburner” and produced by Greek musician/producer, Coti.K.
“Exit: Trance” is their latest record. It was recorded during the summer of 2003, once again with Steve Albini, but this time in Iain Burgess’ Black Box Studio in rural France. It was their first record that got properly distributed abroad, in Portugal and Germany.
