Hailing from the northern region of Greece, experimental rock olympians, VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY, open the hallucinatory hollow for the newest atmospherically captivating offer – “Father Sun“. The track is accompanied by an enthralling lyric video that has just been released via Napalm Records.
“Father Sun“ strongly represents VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY’s essential message – to protect and enjoy mother earth, the holy rivers and the golden sun. The artistic symbiosis of shapes and light underline the lyric video and the band’s unparalleled sound-trademark.
VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY on “Father Sun”:
“For too long now, mother Earth has been sending messages that we are completely on the wrong trail. Let’s see these strange days as an opportunity to reconsider and imagine what our lifestyle should be and what really really matters. It is vital to reconnect with the Earth and start thinking globally. We must set as our priority the prosperity of all human beings with respect and in perfect harmony with the nature. It is clearer now more than ever that we are truly connected and one’s actions affect all of us. As quickly as a virus or something bad spreads without knowing borders or nations, so can love, kindness, good vibes and peace be spread among us. Wash away the fear, realize and embrace our unity with everything, act accordingly and that will be the beginning of the change you are waiting for.“
Opening with conjuring sonically ascending bagpipe melodies, that slowly weave into strong guitars riffs, a sonorous maelstrom off instrumental trance and Alex echoing strong vocal color will draw you right into their exploding musical blend. The protruding synthesis of rhythms, folklore elements and blazing soundscapes coalesces with the vibrant yet explosive atmosphere.
VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY prove that psychedelic heavy rock is one of the most versatile genre of the modern times and radiate with their unique blend of post, kraut, stoner rock spiced by a palpable dose of folk elements. A psychedelic mantra for the new age!

About Age of Aquarius:
The region of Epirus is famous for its landscape of mammoth mountains and holy rivers – and now experimental heavy rock. VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY are deeply influenced by Greek nature and cosmic phenomena and infuse their unique brand of heavy psychedelic rock with folk instruments such as bagpipes, flutes and didgeridoos. Their second album, Age of Aquarius – originally released in September 2019 – will now be reissued by Napalm Records. Epirus may become the unlikely epicenter of the heavy rock universe: A mantra for the new age!
Providing more proof of the budding Greek rock scene is this year’s music documentary, “Greek Rock Revolution”. VILLAGERS OF IOANNINA CITY and six other bands discuss their music and the eternal inspiration for the Greek musical movement – an unstable social situation boosting artistic expression.
