- Προέλευση Athens
xoan is a four-piece band formed in 2017 in Athens. Keeping the sound of the late-90’s and early-00’s as their main connection point, xoan craft songs with catchy hooks and heavy riffing while spicing things up with math outbursts. After a period of pre-production, rehearsals and gigs all around Athens, in the spring of 2018 they hit the studio with prominent producer Alex Bolpasis to create their debut record. The result was “Greenhorn”, an album that swings between the opposite poles of naivety vs maturity. “Greenhorn” is an appellation given to an animal with green (or immature) horns, as well as a term for a naive or gullible person; someone who is easily tricked or swindled. In other interpretations it could mean: a recently enlisted soldier or a raw, inexperienced individual. Their first single called “Dirt” premiered in July 2019 through DIY web-magazine IDIOTEQ.COM and the full album is expected to be released by the end of 2019.
