Mechanimal is, since their creation in 2011 by Greek electronic music producer, Giannis Papaioannou, an industrial project in progress, open to experimentation and research, which absorbs different voices, different musical genres, a universe of references, primary sounds, the political and individual “diaries” of all invisible heroes of a decisive decade in every respect.

“Thorivos” comes as the fifth and first Greek-language act in the big book of Mechanimal, after their homonymous “Mechanimal” debut that was released in 2012, the “Secret Science” of 2014, the “Delta Pi Delta” of 2016 and the “Crux” of 2019.

The eight tracks of the album, with the words of Angelica Vrettou, for a long time in the Mechanimal universe as creator of the unique covers of their records and curator of the videos of their live performances, and performed by the electric voice of Thekla Tselepi, sound like timeless, irrelevant, precious fragments of their hitherto sound-worldview.

Each song individually tells the dark story of this world from the beginning. And all together they compose a manifesto, made to be heard loudly.

The words of Angelica Vrettou are poetry written on the edge of a troubled conscience, in a constant search for a “breath of danger” from societies that are now flooded with the excess of patriarchal toxicity, the violent severance from innocence, the shrinking of fantasy to extinction.

The voice of the legendary Thekla Tselepi tells with the sense of urgency every small or big story of this redemptive confession. Sometimes a woman, sometimes a girl, sometimes a voice that seems to come at the same time as the force of reason and the momentum of the irrational, its electricity opens a door to unexplored human nature, articulating answers.

The music of Giannis Papaioannou unites words and voice in an agreement that starts from the permanent legacy of Lena Platonos, reaches to the avant-garde of Laurie Anderson to return dynamically to the industrial post-dark wave of Mechanimal. Dancing and melancholic, just as fearlessly sincere as the poetry of AngelicaVrettou and the voice of Thekla Tselepi, the unexpectedly melodic straight line that makes “Thorivos” sound like a journey from darkness to light, is just one of the countless “declarations” of this album, which is worth keeping carefully until the end of the world.
