spiros_metsouggis Wow. Powerful stuff here, probably the most thrilling and captivating record so far in 2019. I may just be very enthusiastic but seriously, this thing is effortlessly magnetic! Favorite track: Out of Focus.

deadgirlnz Thalassa perfectly captures the sometimes gentle and sometimes violent ebb and flow of life and loss. It's beautiful, clever and aurally delightful. Buy it immediately. Favorite track: Roseate.

William Lingual I know it's only April – but this album could very well be my favourite album of the year. The song-writing is equal parts; dynamic, emotive, and Gika has a strong contextual understanding of sequencing/ pacing.
I've seen Bjork's name thrown around a lot when describing this album, but I can't help but make parallels to: Portishead, Fever Ray, and even Radiohead (New Geometry sounds akin to Like Spinning Plates)
There's not a dud track among these beauts. Favorite track: Out of Focus.

Tara Transportive, deeply moving, other-worldly, strange and familiar simultaneously and oh so beautiful. Just gorgeous. Favorite track: New Geometry.

Track Name: Roseate
Goodbye
In waves the message rang
through the sea.
The pelicans froze in the air,
they saw what was no longer there.

Goodbye
Went inland but saw statues fall,
reshaping to the golden dawn,
some things the same,
but the landmarks gone.

These city walls our fathers built,
they have crumbled now
But I can't let go

Ω Θεέ Μου
(Oh my God)

New designs
grew ten stories high, and I
saw angels from the highest height.
I almost touched it, but not quite.

Then I saw
a crack in the wall:
a sign
the flaw that let in a new light,
as new machines came into sight.

These city walls our fathers built
they have crumbled now
But I can't let go

These city walls our fathers built,
they have crumbled now
But I can't let go

Ω Θεέ Μου
(Oh my God)

It is blinding me
but I can't turn
away

It is blinding me
but I can't turn
away
Track Name: Out of Focus
All I was was wanting you
you were swaying too.
Drunk and running compassless,
like headless ostriches

Things are falling out of focus

Holding on to history
love, the absentee
And I all I was was wanting you:
There was nothing to do.

Things are falling out of focus

There was nothing to do
Track Name: Swan
Cast along the way,
spinning out in circles,
Waking decibels.
beckoning, beckoning for you

Evening light has past
thought I'd hear something at last.
Through the silence
I was beckoning for you.

I'm in love here, but I don't belong
I can touch you, but I can't hold on

Let me hear the swan sing
melody of mourning.
Sweeter than the silent
exit without warning.

Froze a memory
captured our love perfectly,
but ice in hand won't last
longing for the past

How did we get here?
Feel so far yet exist so near.
Darkness through I'm through
beckoning, beckoning for you

I'm in love here but I don't belong
I can touch you but I can't hold on

Let me hear the swan sing
melody of mourning.
Sweeter than the silent
Exit without warning.
