The Berlin Brides’ sound is a hybrid of electro, punk and powerpop. They are: Natasha, lyricist and lead singer, and Marilena, composer & keybordist who gives the band its electronic identity. Conceived in Berlin and formed in Greece, they are reinventing the music scene in Athens with their caustic lyrics and their combustible live performances.
They have toured Greece extensively and have played alongside CocoRosie, Kap Bambino, Jessie Evans, and in EJEKT festival with the Subways, Klaxons, Jarvis Cocker and Royksopp.
They performed in the UK for the first time in June 2009 in Buffalo Bar, London, as winners of the Velvet Magazine Prize 2009. It was awarded to them by Artrocker Magazine, which labeled their EP ‘Failure to Wank’ one of the two best releases of 2008. That performance granted them a slot in the New Bands Stage at Offset Festival in September 2009, where they performed to an enthused audience and received glowing reviews.
Berlin Brides are currently working on their debut album, due for release in 2010.
