Evripidis and His Tragedies is the alter-ego of Evripidis Sabatis. The “Tragedies” are the devastating, confessional, self-sarcastic and often darkly humorous pop songs that draw on his classical piano training, queer sensibility and storytelling skills to examine and ultimately own up to the vicissitudes of life.

Neos Kosmos, written and recorded in the course of half a decade, maps Evripidis’ particular bittersweet vision of a New World on a personal, artistic, and global level, characterised by intense contradictions. His stories intertwine tragedy with the joy of living, delivered with a new, synthetic sound that breaks away from Evripidis’ former, multi-instrumental musical adventures. While trying to think of a title for his fifth album, Evripidis, eyes on the floor, glimpsed the words “Neos Kosmos,” printed on a crumbled paper receipt from a pharmacy in his hometown Athens. These two words, on a mundane scrap of everyday life, seemed like a sign – resonating perfectly with the artistic process behind the record, as well as its content.
