A musician, writer and visual artist from Athens, Evripidis moved to Barcelona in 2004 and soon became a permanent fixture in the local underground scene. With a plethora of local collaborators he released two albums and an EP. A third album, recorded between BCN, NYC and Athens, broadened his sound and brought some international guests. His fourth album was prompted by a tragic personal loss and marked a change of pace. It was sung in Greek and featured just a handful of Greek musicians.
Evripidis and His Tragedies has played in such festivals as Primavera Sound, FIB, Indietracks or Eurosonic Noorderslag, in museums like MACBA or Caixa Forum, in various venues in Spain, Greece, UK, Germany, France, U.S.A, Portugal and The Netherlands and has opened for international artists like John Grant, Jens Lekman, Peter Bjorn and John or Arab Strap.
His new project is taking a sparer synth pop direction, mixing his love of Doo Wop, Girl Groups, New Wave and Indie Pop with richly textured electronic soundscapes. New music will drop shortly.
