Jan Van de Engel meets Pavlos Pavlidis onstage to celebrate the recent release of his mini album Bad Poem.
Pavlos Pavlidis interprets the vocal part of this multilayered, contemporary synth-pop album over music by Jan Van de Engel and lyrics by screenwriter Efthymis Filippou (Dogtooth, The Lobster) and sound processing by producer Christos Lainas.
In Bad Poem, Jan Van de Engel forges a new aural universe. The band’s distinctive sound comes from Vagelis Stefanopoulos' analog synthesizers, Paraskevas Kitsos's basslines, and the driving beats, in a balancing act between introversion and extroversion. Fotis Siotas brings his electric violin to the band and provides the vocals for the older repertoire.
The SNFCC concert will feature the mini album’s six original compositions – three on lyrics by Efthymis Filippou and three on lyrics by Jan Van de Engel, lots of material from Jan Van’s previous albums, and some of Pavlos Pavlidis’ favorite songs.
