Formed in 2005, Empty Frame have become one of the most talked-about bands of the Alternative Greek scene. They’ve played some of the most prominent venues in Athens (Kyttaro, An club), taken part in several festivals and have supported international acts such as Woven Hand and Sieben. Their live shows have gotten them great reviews and a lot of attention.
It’s difficult to attach a certain genre to Empty Frame. The use of classical instruments like cello, violin and piano are juxtaposed with hard rock guitars, drum and bass and their song instrumentation ranges from lyrical to intense and from playful to atmospheric. The bands’ influences include Tom Waits, The Beatles, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mark Lanegan, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Andrew Bird, the Tindersticks, Love and many more diverse artists combined in a unique way to produce a unique result.
The group’s first demo, entitled “Take Over The City” recorded in 2007 got them a lot of radio air time and press recognition. Their full album “They Think We Are Eskimos” was released on April 2011 from Legend Records and was met with great enthusiasm by fans and critics alike.
