MeQ and “Lies”
New Album Release
If artistic freedom is the right phrase, MeQ is the right band
For more than 10 years MeQ keep pushing the envelope in the land of artistic freedom and that is a remark based not only on their sound but also on the general aesthetic approach, familiar for anyone has seen them playing live through all these years
With Costas Anastassopoulos and Valia Tsiblakaki being the core of the band and with the joyful help of some excellent musicians like Yiorgos Kostopoulos (electric bass) and Pit Assbill (electronic drums/backing vocals), MeQ now present their new album entitled “Lies”.
With an ‘aroma’ reminiscent of Tuxedomoon, Hector Zazou and John Cale and blending their own creative ideas, MeQ present in this record thirteen new songs reaching and testing new boundaries.
"Lies" unfolds with charm a unique mix of songs varying from electro dark sounds with a touch of minimalism to frenetic art punk. A hallucinatory boulevard that echoes existentialism, cynicism and skepticism.
Recording, mix and production for "Lies" was in the hand of the band itself while the mastering has the signature of Sara Carter from Music Mix Pro (England).
