Phase Back on Track #9 ~ Static

Now that’s a favourite one… Static was finished right before our second gig ever where it debuted as well… There are two kinds of songs for us the ones we first play live and then we record, and the ones we are recording beforehand. Static is a living example of the first instance, it being…

Phase Back on Track #4 ~ Transcendence

Transcendence came into being, out of the first bunch of ideas I’ve been hoarding and for a while there was just the first progression standing there lonely along with the first verse… Touching ground, held by an unseen bound / for western star drags me way to far / to find you my love, to build…

Phase Back on Track #15 ~ Amethyst

The main riff to Amethyst came into being during an evening we’ve been staying in a friend’s house with another mate of ours, chilling while the exam period was on for the course we’ve been all attending at the time (all three of us dropped out of, but that’s another story). I was digging my mate’s guitar…

Phase Back on Track #2 ~ Perdition

The very first song we finished, the first to rehearse and the first to play live. The most discussed one and the most characteristic of our fairly unique style. Just not to be repeated: ”Back in 2004, when I tried to form the band with my good friend Chris Gioldasis and decided to write new…

Phase Back on Track #20 ~ Birthday Song

It all started an evening I was hanging out with the Saint on his folks’ basement where we used to play and I told him about an idea I’ve been having for a while, writing a Birthday Song that would be more like the introspective kind of thing more than anything and he came up…

Chris Tsantalis’ Review on the Wait – Poetry and Psychedelia

I like Phase and the most prominent reason is that they are inquiring minds… I couldn’t expect anything less from some restive spirits, and the Wait is what should have come to engrave them in my conscience! How would you like if David Bowie was in a chareem jamming along with The Tea Party? How would…

Dave Wolff’s Review of the Wait

The latest in a long line of independently recorded and released recordings by this experimental band from Greece. If this is your first exposure to Phase you might find it difficult to believe they have this much staying power sans label backing. But they’ve managed to remain consistent releasing material and keeping it fresh and inventive…

Digital Stimulation

So here it is at last! Our earnest effort… And what an irony to be released digitally on the record store day… You see we live in an era of one more big shift in the artistic mediums… From Edison‘s waxed cylinder to Spotify the essence remains really the same… The song remained the same……

The Wait’s Cover Art

Q:[…]Speaking of whom (Alexis Marcou) and his beautiful art we have the honour to present what he’s done for the Wait for the first time. Your album cover is a bit abstract, just like your music. Tell us about it. It is exactly like our music to be honest… Like I told you we are…

Interview to noizy.gr about ‘the Wait’

Is intelligence a fundamental musician’s property? The way he transforms his ideas in notes, his obsessions… even his fears… The way he does it can be lousy, but it can also be the definition of applied perfection. The Larissean Phase have stopped impressing me by their music and their use of language… I was shocked…
