It’s the fourth time that Lebanon Hanover performed in Athens.The band is composed of a couple: Larissa Iceglass on vocals, guitars and synths and William Maybelline on vocals, bass and synths,two musicians that are not like others as they don't like the star system and they give priority to their integrity and authenticity, a kind of modern age romantics. Last night Lebanon Hanover presented "Besides the abyss", their 4th regular album(the first Lebanon Hanover album to be recorded in a professional studio ever) on the stage of a full of people DEATH DISCO. The duet had no difficulties creating gloomy romantic atmosphere and awakening the emotions of the audience. Inner and romantic rhythm melodies driven by the melancholic voice of Larissa Iceglass, elegant guitar parts, sad and slow basslines ,icy synths, poetic lyrics , all parts of a unique presentation and a perfect combination to express the poetry of emotionalism, detachment, longing, love, melancholy. They played the last album and some favourite tracks from previous works(gallowdance) for a little more than an hour (with the encore).Best moment ,in my opinion, was the last song ‘sunderland’ which closed the encore and the gig and which larissa and William performed theatrically ,saying goodbye to us in the best way. Well,they are already famous here ,larissa and William love Athens so I think we will enjoy them again soon.
