about

During a long period of absence Athens-based trio, Film, took advantage of time in order to experiment on new material. Their comeback with a brand new album, called “Eclipse”, will be a pleasant surprise for those who are familiar with their music so far, but also those listening to it for the first time.

“Eclipse” starts with a big leap in a dark and spacey synth storm, moving on deconstructing progressively its dark foundation without losing its melodic thread and pop influences. Haunting sci-fi disco moments, gender bending otherworldly vocals, a vision through crystal lens, dominated by legendary analogue synth sounds based on an hybrid electronic/instrumental rhythm section, sometimes abstract and other times massive and epic. “Eclipse” is a look back to the 80’s electronic era through a wet window screen in black and white. Wet, deep and cinematic, minimal and modernistic at the same time, the album is skillfully balanced between experimentation and melodic simple riffs.

“Eclipse” is out on cd, vinyl including bonus cd and digital album from Inner Ear.

Track Name: Ping Pong With Angels
You are my strongest part
Big hand over my blanket when I sleep
Gate to a Neon World
And in the longest run
Big time of letting love out in the streets
My contact with strangers
My ping pong with angels
Track Name: Eclipse
You will count the days begging
for a little more time
Swimmer in aspirin
yearning the tide

When the flood will reach you on a rooftop
waving the white flag
You will dive to press the button
to change your luck

You'll be under the A
Playing the B
It should happen to you
But it happened to me

Now all we see is the rising Mars

You will hear the waves breaking
on a midnight call
Salt on your earpiece
Gulls in the hall

When the flood will reach you on a rooftop
waving the white flag
You will climb to press the button
to change your luck

You'll be under the A
Playing the B
It should happen to you
It happened to me

You'll be under the A
Playing the B
It happened to you
It happened to me

Now all we see is the rising Mars

I think I should call you
Track Name: The Gun And The Deer
When we met
at the edge of a thread
From the part of the heart
that made things real

Now we left
And went as far we could get
There's something inside
That keeps us near

Oh Oh Oh
We’re stack with an emotion unforgettable

Oh Oh Oh
We’re stack with an emotion unforgettable
Track Name: L' Amour Imaginaire
All along the rabbit holes
ticking clocks and white teapots
You are sliding down without Alice

In the foggy endless dark
there's a blinking distant spark
A signal from your lost flashlight

There's nothing hidden
There's nothing missing

A flash from the atmosphere's edge
A fragment of neon and LEDs
Something you thought that you saw
and felt L’Amour Imaginaire

All along the checkered floors
secret vaults and magic doors
That lead you back
to the office

It's only there while you tie your shoes
Mirror pieces crystal blue
and stones that float into chaos

There's nothing hidden
There's nothing missing

A flash from the atmosphere's edge
A fragment of neon and LEDs
Something you thought that you saw
and felt L’Amour Imaginaire
Track Name: Produkt
Mayday!
I hear all your bones
Now I receive it
Your blinks and your codes
Now you transmit it
Every piece of yourself tells a story
Of abasement and truce
How you took all that's left?
How you took all that's left?
How you took all that's left?
And made something new

Pay-day!
It comes all along
Under the ceiling
It is a default
Without a feeling
Did you call for your personal Noah
Is he off on a cruise?
How he took all that's left?
How he took all that's left?
How he took all that's left?
And made something new

Heyday!
It's hidden in banks
Have you been dreaming?
It is a mismatch
Values retreating
I will spend every last filthy dollar
for a place in the zoo
This is all that is left
This is all that is left
This is all that is left
To make something new
Track Name: Coral
A siren said
Lost kids are never lost
Under the ice there is love
Coming to you from your tap
into ice cubes
Until they are back again

Up on the surface hear the lifeboats passing by
It's almost dinner time I won't be home tonight
Just feed my animals and keep the radio on
It never crossed my mind
but here they say they know
A lego brick can hold the weight of the world
It never crossed my mind
but here they say they know

Walked far in the snow
Walked far in the snow

A siren said
Lost kids are never lost
Under the ice there is love
Coming to you from your tap
into ice cubes
Until they are back again
Track Name: Star Wars
You move me
Like a wave carrying trash shore to shore
And blew me
Lego bricks blowing up in slo-mo

Your space den
I don’t know which July I got lost
And since then
I am drifting away from the world
Track Name: Timelapse
It was all smoke and mirrors
Just a memory of sand
6 feet under the sugar
It got bitter and dull

I should better believe it
It’s taking me over
In the heart of the city
It’s hard to recover

It’s the age of the scissors
Of divisions and cuts
Six feet under the feathers
grab your lighters and masks

In 88
It was OK

I should better believe it
It’s taking me over
In the heart of the city
It’s hard to recover
Track Name: Waltz (Telescope)
Eating ice drinking lava
breakfast of a lonely soul
Polar bear lost in summer
In a hunter's telescope

I don't care what time is bringing
to replace the best you won
I left the phone in there ringing
Heading to a waterfall

Starfish glow
Plans chairs thoughts
All covered slowly by snow
