Gandi were formed in April 2013 by Spiros Spirakos, George Voutsinas, Torsten Tilamans, Odysseas Manidakis and Thodoris Bogdanos, gradually shaping their sound using indie folk and post-rock elements. Their first album, “Time and Youth”, revolves around the concepts of time and memory, as well as their impact on love and dependence. Eight pop songs with strong indie folk aesthetics, where post-rock outbursts and electronic experimentations surround enchanting melodies, comprise a dynamic and mature debut.
