Bassist Spyros Olivotos and his personal project Sidus present the new single “Dark Flames”


“Dark Flames” is raising awareness about the devastating conflagrations that took place across many countries in the Mediterranean region during August 2021. Nature, human and animal life faced serious threats caused by extended wildfires. This song is a call to action to all of us. Even if this burning nightmare is now over, the consequences of climate change are still ongoing and they will keep affecting us and our home planet until we decide to consciously change our behaviour. There is still time to prevent the future ‘Dark Flames’ that will certainly come.

The song’s production was arranged by Spyros Olivotos. It was mixed and mastered by Steve Lado.

All the instruments are performed by the artist accompanied by Nikos Togkanidis (via his project The Abyss Inside Us) on drums.
