Originally released in 1985 Lena Platono’s Gallop remains a very contemporary album. Lyrically synth music with abstract details and lyrics that leave nobody untouched. This record shaped the Greek electronic scene for the years to come.
‘Gallop’ was composed in the wake of a painful separation, and took several months to complete. Lena says, “It’s a study in the mythology of urban population of the contemporary metropolis and also a gaze into the future life of it.” The album is made exclusively using analogue synthesizers and heavily features the iconic Roland TR-808 drum machine.
