about

"....“I Know”, the newest single by solo artist and self-proclaimed “one man band” MANOLIS is much better than you’d expect, and much better than it should be. The only reason I say this is because, in general, expectations of independent artists tend to be low, and expectations of solo artists who post Youtube videos tend to be extremely low. Prepare to be shocked. From the beginning, the production and warm synths provide a backdrop for Manolis’ emotionally charged, yet cool and smooth, vocals. The vocal delivery is mature and chosen like a seasoned pop star. Rather than simply crafting a catchy tune, it’s clear that Manolis wants to affect the listener on an energetic level. I’m a big fan of British electronic act UNKLE as well as David Bowie’s controversial “Outside” release (1995), and I heard both subtle influences here.

Manolis himself is inspired by a long line of pop and rock music greats; Prince, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, The Beach Boys, Hall & Oates. Many artists name-drop and then fail to live up to the hype. Manolis does, and he also encourages repeat listens. Not only is he adept at every element of the song writing process – he performs with taste, leaving space for the piece to breathe. Manolis juggles the responsibilities of piano, keys, bass, guitar, drums, ukulele, melodica and glockenspiel with grace. With over 750,000 views on Youtube and a growing global audience, he is an example of one of the positive sides of the often ridiculed Youtube format. Even though the video shows Manolis himself playing all the instruments in a studio setting, it doesn’t for a moment come across as indulgent or bland. This is absolutely brilliant...."

Track Name: I know
Would you tell me something I want to hear
I feel alone
Always trying to be on the safe side of life
Until this day
Never cared to learn of a different way
I need to know
I'm living the life of someone else these days
I think you know

I Know, I Know, I Know, I think you know

I get inspired into my lucid dreams
It feels so real
I'm dreaming of places I've never been
It feels ideal

I Know, I Know, I Know, I think you know.
Track Name: Tired of 01010101 (U)
You are of coins
and the game has ended
There is continue option
You have failed

Don't try to cheat me
I'm not falling for that
In this adventure
you are of luck

That's right
I know I'm tired of U
I know I'm tired of you

Don't give me riddles
I don't care to solve
I guess I'm talking
To the wall
You are act
Just nagging a lot
That's not gonna help you
You're not twisting the plot

I'm tired of U
