Tindersticks

A fan-favourite of Greek music lovers, the British band Tindersticks will make a single mid-summer appearance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.

Founded in Nottingham by Stuart Ashton Staples in 1991, the band was a refreshing entrance in British music scene. With its instantly recognizable traits – Staples’ soothing, refined, baritone voices, string, wind and percussion arrangements, gorgeous sad melodies, seductive lyrics – Tindersticks are a living legend.

The band’s music is atmospheric and full of imagery, with songs about unfulfilled love and still-burning passions. Their elaborate arrangements, combining electric guitars, drums and bass with acoustic instruments such as violin, contrabass, flute, glockenspiel, trumpets and clarinet, all comprise their captivating signature “Tindersticks sound.” The band combines romantic sensibilities and retro aesthetics in the best possible way, continuously refining their melancholy style, paying homage to soul music, and improvising on sensual jazz motifs.
