"Gravitysays_i" was formed in March of 2003 by Manos Paterakis and Nikos Retsos in Piraeus. Their aim was to accompany their aspirations and their living with melody, as well as to explore the quality of difference, as the two founding members perceive the notion.
Their first appearance in discography came with the album entitled “the roughest sea” (2007), released on Sirius, the label that was founded by Manos Hatzidakis, the famous Greek composer. It is comprised by 9 compositions inspired by egotism, vanity and the isolation of modern man. It is a conceptual album characterized by consecutive flow, where the electronic element meets traditional instrumentation, while minimalistic forms follow the general pop-rock spirit.
Their new album entitled “The Figures of Enormous Grey and The Patterns of Fraud” (Restless Wind, 2011) is different, with regard to its theme, as it reexamines social values, institutions and morality as an extension of individual, as well as collective conscience. This time, their sound follows a more traditional / Mediterranean audio vocabulary, while, at the same time, the dark, atmospheric elements become even more apparent.
