Evripidis and his Tragedies: "Melancholia" video

Evripidis Sabatis has made a video for his latest single Melancholia, seeking closure after being the victim of a homophobic attack in his hometown Athens in 2014: "He turned this traumatic event into an instrumental piano piece, putting his classical training to good use. Realizing the parallels with the subject matter of Lars von Trier's movie Melancholia, he started writing the lyrics and six years later he has reworked it as a brazen synth pop anthem. Now living in Barcelona he invited his friends in the Catalonian capital to provide the backing vocals and act as classic Greek choir, just like in the plays of old".

The clip was directed by Miguel Rojas and Iván Alarcón.
