2 mins read

Grab a spoon because it’s time to dive into the wild world of FALOODA, Athens’ latest noise/punk disruption, blending chaos like it’s a sonic milkshake! Fresh out of the chaos kitchen, they’ve whipped up their first Demo, and let me tell you, it’s a noise funk dessert with layers as complex as the sweet treat they’re named after—vermicelli vibes with rose syrup riffs, all swirling in a hardcore milk of madness.

Dropping tracks from their Bandcamp site like hot basil seeds, FALOODA are a full-on sensory experience. These Athenian anarchists have churned out a concoction inspired by the traditional Mughlai dessert. Each member brings a different flavor to the mix, making their sound as layered and intriguing as the dessert’s ingredients.

Now, the Demo’s artwork? It’s a trip! Dimitris Armenakis visualized three dessert glasses getting their groove on to FALOODA’s tunes. Each glass represents a unique blend of their musical mischief.


Peering deeper into their lyrical universe, FALOODA’s tracks are a manifesto against the modern malaise—digital dystopia, social angst, and a loud condemnation of war.

They’ve got songs that make you wanna smash your smartphone and others that might just inspire a tear for humanity. For full track by track commentary, scroll down.

If you’re vibing with FALOODA’s wild wavelengths, they’re also tipping their hats to some fellow noise-mongers.

A lot of bands are shredding the Greek underground scene, each with their unique twist on noise and hardcore. FALOODA checked in on IDIOTEQ with their quick list of best picks.

FALOODA’s top underground bands worth a check:

Mammock – Rust

Noise rock with post-hardcore influences at it’s finest mixture. Both of their LPs are great.

Chronoboros – It Happened Near Your Home

The label ‘post-hardcore’ underestimates the Athenian trio. Their volume grabs the listener in an unstoppable, yet ridiculously musically rich whirlwind.

Rita Mosss – Ass

Next door studio mates, Rita Mosss have worthy been labeled as the most unconventional band of our scene. Truly punk spirit without necessarily playing punk.

Tiffany – TV Obligation

Tiffany’s long awaited debut LP “Eye” is soon to be released, keep an eye out for this insanely talented bunch.

Back to FALOODA, the band sat down with us to share some deep dives into their Demo track by track, revealing the layers and the narratives woven into their wild offering.

FALLODA’s Demo – Track by Track:


Orizuru 折鶴 : The song tells the story of Sadako Sasaki, the girl that became the symbol of innocent people who lost their lives due to the atomic bomb. Sadako was 2 years old when the atomic bomb hit Hiroshima on the 6th of August 1945. Neither herself nor her family died as a result of the explosion, but in January 1955 she was diagnosed with leukemia. She set herself a goal of folding 1,000 paper cranes, which according to the legend would grant the folder a wish. Sadako fell short of her goal, having folded only 644 before her death, at 12 years of age.

Her friends completed the remaining 356 paper cranes and buried them all with her. At the same time, they published all of her letters so the world would know her wish for world peace.

On the bottom of her monument it’s written “This is our cry, this is our prayer: for building peace in the world”.

Boolean Religion: The song talks about technology becoming one with religion and worshiped as such, which translates into a binary language of ones and zeros to the machine. The worshipers become so obsessed with the machine to the point that they don’t realize how it is slowly killing them.


Bottleneck: The track talks about the capacity of an application or a computer system, which becomes limited by a single component, like the neck of a bottle slowing down the overall water flow.

Disaster Recovery: “Disaster Recovery” is about the ability to restore access and functionality. The track works as a soundscape as the process potentially fails, or not, to recover the system-it is up to the listener to interpret and decide.
