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.

Zebra Tracks

Their first release in early 2006 was the double A-side single (Silicone Valley/ Borealis Fallacia. The sales of the CD single (700 copies) and the number of tickets in the concerts were an unexpected success.

Zebra Tracks are picked up as opening act for Television Personalities and is appearing in the concert for the 4th European Social Forum on 6 May and on 22 June in the Music Day on Kotzia Square stage, one week after their participation in the Urban Fest Osijek in Croatia.

The fuzz around the band’s name was followed by interviews in Rock Magazines, Radio Stations and Mad TV’s "Post Alternative" show.

Meanwhile the song “Spare Time Soundtrack” is recorded at the Sonic Playground Studio and is included in the original soundtrack of the movie “Approaching of the hour”.

The next plan was the outer Athens scene. The decision to follow Film, one of the most important Greek bands of EMI, at their tour in Greece, led them to 10 northern cities in December 06.

In June 2007 the Zebra Tracks E.P. is released and distributed by Sonic Playground. It receives great critics, hits No1 in the indie record shop Vinyl Microstore and stays there for 3 months. It’s also voted 4th best Greek release of 2007, by the readers of the Velvet magazine.

The same time Placebo picks up Zebra Tracks as an opening act for their concert in Lycabetus Theatre, where Zebras play in front of 7000 fans. One month later Zebras play live with Kaiser Chiefs, Long Blondes and Good Shoes at the Open Air Festival.

During 2008 the band spends most of the time in studio recording the debut full-length album “A family picture from… Zebra Tracks”, which is finally released in October 2009 by Sonic Playground Records. Zebras play live with the Levellers at the opening of Fuzz Club before presenting the album in Athens on 31/10. Since then, they are touring around in various cities and working on new material.
