A post-punk burner brimming with frenzied energy with a swirl of droning-art-rock ambiance. The group collaborated with Lee Ranaldo.(Sonic Youth).

THE CALLAS is the tip of an artistic squad producing music, artworks, films, magazines, events, art shows, initiated by the brothers Lakis & Aris Ionas.

Their last two albums, "Am I Vertical?"and "Half Kiss, Half Pain" were produced by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Lydia Lunch, The Cramps).

"As multi-media artists and filmmakers, they approach music making from a very different perspective than the average musician and come up with some quite unexpected results," says Sclavunos.

" Lee Ranaldo described his experience on collaborating with the Callas: "It's been a pleasure for me to know and collaborate with The Callas on their new album - we met a few years ago and I've been drawn into their artistic world in Athens.

I'm a fan of their visual art tapestries and their art studio/venue and I've been having a great time making music with these like-minded travellers.

Our collaboration took off quickly and was such a natural fit - we speak the same language and the performances we've done together have been a total blast!".

Their studio is one of the most active cultural spaces in Athens. Going by the name Velvet Room they organise art shows combined with music gigs and DJ sets involving some of the best new bands and artists in Athens.
