Rainbow lovers
Blind stalkers
A century of numbness
Exhaling fire
Function disorder
D.I.Y. rockstars
Tattoos and boredom
Imitation of desire

Knocking on broken doors
Dreaming of a future loss
A dive into madness
We’re like fire
Like Jesus I’m nobody’s son
Like devil I’m always around
I’m not an enemy
I’m just a friend in denial

Is this sadness or boredom?
Love or despair?
How would i know?

All I want is a little piece of hope
All I want is the miracle of love

Vagina Lips

Jimmy Polioudis is a strange adult boy who lives in Thessaloniki and writes music under the name Vagina Lips. His basic peculiarity is that at a time when music has been devoured by lifestyle, he focuses on the essence of things, writing songs non stop and proving that “less is more” is essential for creating a good album.

His urgent need to share his music with the world is consistent with an era running at internet speeds and so he already has a fairly large discography of digital releases. From this point of view, “Generation Y” is his least impatient and his most well-crafted album so far.

“Generation Y” was recorded in the summer of 2018 and contains eight of the numerous songs he has written over the past two years. The album’s reference point is the artist’s generation (80-90s) with musical influences from indie bands such as Stereolab, Sonic Youth and Car Seat Headrest. Pop forms, analogue synthesizers and dark wave atmosphere blend uniquely with dark personal lyrics that besides their realism also reveal the black humor of Vagina Lips. The lost adolescence (Boy June) meets the fakeness of a “perfect life” (This Is A Good Life) and the ultimate love ballad (Destroy Me) joins forces with a dream pop escape (Like Fire) just before the ultimate loneliness (Skies Falling Down On Me). But that’s already too much information for a Vagina Lips album where songs speak better on their own.

Out on black and pink vinyl LP and digital album via Inner Ear.
