Athens-based musician Stelios Vassiloudis reacts to the current raging wildfires with his new charitable single, “Nothing Will Ever Be The Same” and is available to purchase now on Bedrock. All proceeds from the release will be donated to the Hellenic Red Cross to aid those currently affected by the European wildfires.
The song is a commentary on the destruction that Stelios has seen first hand in his home country as well as across the continent that acts as a call to action for the industry. The offering opens with a low, rumbling static that builds up each passing second. The melancholic soundscapes sparks raw emotion as it is paired alongside various instrumentation. Halfway into the composition, a propelling beat is introduced into the space and its overall pace quickens and lifts off.
Stelios told us that “I often hope that this shared crisis we face as a species might spur the much-needed impetus for (many of) us to see things differently. To become more appreciative and aware of the world beyond our own selfish and narrow confines. To wonder why this was all happening and how we should do things from now on. Perhaps even to learn to transcend our own interests and strive for the benefits of others, on occasion.“
