Melbourne based duo LEFKADA (stylised LEFKΛΔΛ), consisting of Tim Cox & Selene Messinis, have steadily made a name themselves over the past couple of years, crafting a new space in electronic music with their forward thinking singles ‘Dead Lines’, ‘Lungs’ and ‘Ella’s Flowers’. Now the producer-drummer and songwriter-keyboardist pair deliver a magnetic commentary on influencers and social media with the release of their new single ‘The Curator’.
The pair set the tone from the outset, creating an upbeat groove with bass driven synth stabs, 808 claps, a bright electronic breakdown, all topped off by Selene’s demanding vocals – all elements coming together to produce a standout electro-pop anthem.
Detailing the inspiration behind the record LEFKADA share, “‘The Curator’ is inspired by our fascination with “influencers”; we’re always wondering what their lives are truly like behind the veil of social media. Online, they meticulously curate their personal brand and image, so that their lives appear in perfect snapshot moments, which are usually never as perfect as they seem…”
With a background in jazz, R&B and hip-hop, LEFKADA draw from various experiences as a duo, and in their respective solo projects, having performed and written for some of Australia’s most hyped acts, including Woodes, and Melbourne collective NO ZU. With over 100k streams across their catalogue to date, and a plethora of support from triple j, triple j Unearthed, Fresh 92.7, 4ZZZ, RTR FM and more, LEFKADA are proving to be the newcomers to keep a firm eye on in 2021.
LEFKADA’s new single ‘The Curator’ is out now on all digital platforms and streaming services.
