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.

FILM’s compelling cinematic soundscapes revolve around nihilistic urban settings and inspire celluloid fantasies. The work of this Athenian avant-garde four- piece as it morphs into a nebulous dark-wave amalgamation of post-punk and electronic facets resembles the mystique of a lost, enigmatic motion picture. Their flickering sequences sombre sonic textures, distorted outbreaks and the angelic, yet quirky and energising vocal touches by Etten draw inspiration directly from the iconic legacy of FILM’s universally-acclaimed compatriot Vangelis. Their latest collective effort ‘Persona’ is a commanding oeuvre encapsulating an artistic vision of rare grandeur and amplitude, which - along with their staggering live performances - was hailed in unison by various respected international music media:

"Clear heritage managed so smart and lovingly on stage that it could turn into a cliché, instead it becomes exciting” – Gaffa (SWE)

“Pleasingly atmospheric post-pop shudder” – Clash Magazine (UK)

“Visually strong expression” – Gaffa (DK)

"Exploring the avant-garde of pop music on their latest album 'Persona'
makes FILM an exhilarating addition to the scene of art-rock" – Gogoyoko (ICE)

FILM enjoy a leading status amongst the Athenian indie scene and have enviable live credits with support slots for behemoths such as The Cure, New Order, Iggy & the Stooges, and The Flaming Lips.
They have extensively toured Europe with gigs in the UK, Switzerland, Spain, Slovenia and the Netherlands and are among the very few non-Nordic acts that have performed at Denmark's SPOT Festival.

FILM are currently recording a single with Hildur Kristin Stefánsdóttir, the soothing voice of Rökkurró Iceland’s finest folk-pop outfit. 'Harmur Fuglsins' (Icelandic for Sorrow of the Bird) is the arresting outcome of a collaboration infused by strikingly contrasting geographical and artistic backgrounds, to be released in September on Inner Ear/Kimi Records.
