Στρύχνο (Strychno) is a band from Patras, Greece. It was created in the spirit of DIY, in the full sense of the word. It was shaped by joint search for means of expression for the emotions of four people, closely observing the world. Their vision is a deconstruction. It is an antidote to fear and loneliness, feeding on our minds and souls. Devouring our hopes and future we would like to live in and have an impact on. It is a loud voice of opposition, that nobody wants to hear, so that life would not be just a promise filled with empty words without coverage…
And the music? “Music is a language that lives, satisfies our need to express what we live for and what is to come, what is inevitable.” It’s a mix of motoric goth / postpunk with poetic and highly depressive lyrics with female vocals. Release is a vinyl re-edition of the material from 2020, previously only on CD released by the band itself.
