about

Σtella is already known as the most characteristic female voice in the Greek electro-pop scene. After many collaborations and guest appearances (My Wet Calvin, Sillyboy, Coti K., Expert Medicine, Nteibint, Sad Disco) and two side projects (Fever Kids, Chest) it's time for her debut self-titled album.

The world of "Σtella" unfolds in 10 tracks where love for the 80's is present, synths are bolstered by funky guitar and dynamic bass and disco beats and colorful pop textures embrace the unique vocals of Σtella. The album was recorded in 2014, Σtella has written music and lyrics and has played most of the instruments, while it was produced by Σtella and Nteibint. The tracks "Detox" and "Picking Words" are already favoured by radio producers and the album is expected to be among the best pop albums of the year.

Track Name: Picking Words
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO
HOLDING MY BREATH TILL I SHOW
BUILDING A FENCE FOR MY SENSE
LOOKS LIKE I’M READY TO GROW
AND IF YOU MEET ME TONIGHT
DON’T LET ME OUT OF YOUR SIGHT
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO

COME OUT AND GIVE ME A KISS
BE THE ONE TO TEACH ME THIS
THE WAIT IS TOO MUCH TO TAKE
AND I’M STARTING TO MISS
THE SOUNDS YOU MAKE AT NIGHT
GRABBING MY FINGERS SO TIGHT
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO

YOU SURELY KNOW HOW TO TAKE
THEN MY BODY STARTS TO SHAKE
COME UP WITH TRICKS FOR YOUR FIX
EVERY TIME I TAKE THE BAIT
SO IF YOU CALL ME AGAIN
I WON’T PICK UP, I’LL PRETEND
YOU SURELY KNOW HOW TO TAKE
YOU SURELY KNOW HOW TO TAKE

IT’S TIME TO CLEAN UP THE MESS
CUZ I’M STARTING TO LOVE YOU LESS
NO USE IN TRYING TO SEDUCE
PUTTING ON A SHORT DRESS
LOVE FROM THE MOMENT WE MET
THERE’S NOT AN OUNCE OF REGRET
YOU SURELY KNOW HOW TO TAKE
YOU SURELY KNOW HOW TO TAKE

I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO
HOLDING MY BREATH TILL I SHOW
BUILDING A FENCE FOR MY SENSE
LOOKS LIKE I’M READY TO GROW
AND IF YOU MEET ME TONIGHT
DON’T LET ME OUT OF YOUR SIGHT
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO
I’M PICKING WORDS AS I GO 
Track Name: The Map
SIP SLOW AND HAVE A TASTE
OF WHAT’S ON MY MIND
SOMETHING TO DEDICATE
ON RADIO TIME

ACCORDING TO THE MAP
YOU HAVE NO DIRECTION
IT’S TIME TO FACE THE FACTS
AND SHOW ME AFFECTION

SOME BOYS ARE PASSING BY
THEY ALL WANNA BE YOU
I WONDER WHY I TRY
I WONDER WHAT TO DO

NOW THAT I KNOW YOU
DOWN TO YOUR TOES
TRAIL OF A TEARDROP
SHOWS

SLEEP ON THE MASTER BED
AND SEE WHAT YOU DREAM OF
RUMORS ABOUT YOU SAID
YOU KNEW WHERE TO GET LOVE

AFTER THE MORNING PRAYER
I WONDER WHO HEARD ME
WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE
TO FIND ME AND SOOTHE ME

NOW THAT I KNOW YOU
DOWN TO YOUR TOES
TRAIL OF A TEARDROP
SHOWS

I KNOW I WAS
YOUR SECOND HAND

IT MIGHT’VE SEEMED
LIKE A BETTER PLAN
EVERYBODY TOLD YOU

NOW WE’RE
LOCKED IN A BOX
STUCK IN DETOX
FOREVER

NOW WE’RE
RUBBER AND GLUE
I STUCK ON YOU
FOREVER

LESS THAN A DAY
MORE THAN A YEAR
GOOD TO SEE YOU WAITING

I’M CHECKING TWICE
AND STAYING CLEAR
ONLY NOW I’M FAKING

CARESS MY MIND
AND TAP MY BACK
OH WON’T YOU REMIND ME?

WHAT WE HAD ONCE
NOW IS PAINTED BLACK
DON’T YOU COME AROUND ME

NOW WE’RE
LOCKED IN A BOX
STUCK IN DETOX
FOREVER

NOW WE’RE
RUBBER AND GLUE
I STUCK ON YOU
FOREVER 
Track Name: Repeat
YOU’RE ALWAYS WONDERING WHERE TO SLEEP
AND EVERY NIGHT YOU SMELL A DIFFERENT SHEET
STORIES YOU SAY GO ON REPEAT
FLATTERING WORDS THAT MAKE YOUR HEART SICK
AH AH AH
FLATTERING WORDS THAT MAKE YOUR HEART SICK
AH AH AH

NOW ALL THE FLAVORS TASTE THE SAME
YOU’RE KISSING HEAVENS THAT FORGOT YOUR NAME
NO MATTER HOW YOU FLIP THE FRAME
ANOTHER PICTURE MAKES THE HALL OF SHAME
AH AH AH
ANOTHER PICTURE MAKES THE HALL OF SHAME
AH AH AH

KISSING
SLAPPING
CHOKING
DANCING

HEARING THE SIRENS IS A TRAP
AND ALL THESE STORIES MAKE YOUR SUNSHINES BLACK
OH HOW I NEED YOU TO ATTACK
AND FIND YOUR WAY INSIDE MY TWISTED MAP
AH AH AH
AND FIND YOUR WAY INSIDE MY TWISTED MAP
AH AH AH

KISSING
SLAPPING
CHOKING

Track Name: Made To Attack
BORN IN A FIELD
AND MADE TO ATTACK
I LOOK AT THE SKIES
AND NEVER WEAR BLACK

I SEEM A BIT OLD
BUT I’M NOT TOO YOUNG
THE CHILD INSIDE ME
IS SHOWING IT’S TONGUE

WORRY I DON’T
NO MATTER HOW STRANGE
IT’S ONLY A GAME
OF MINIMUM RANGE

I CARRY MY COAT
I CARRY YOURS TOO
I HOLD ON YOUR HAND
I KNOW WE ARE THROUGH

MINUTES FROM NOW
A DAY LIKE TODAY
YOU WON’T FEEL A THING
THE SUN AND THE RAIN

DON’T ASK ABOUT ME
I KNOW IT’S A TRICK
YOUR SHADOW MOVES FAST
I CAN’T SEE YOUR FEET

BURN ON THE SUN
FLY ON THE MOON
TAKE OUT YOUR GUN
SHOOT ME AS SOON AS

I WALK AWAY
FASTER THAN YOU
RUNNING TO FIND
SOMETHING TO DO

BORN IN A FIELD
AND MADE TO ATTACK
I LOOK AT THE SKIES
AND NEVER WEAR BLACK

I SEEM A BIT OLD
BUT I’M NOT TOO YOUNG
THE CHILD INSIDE ME
IS SHOWING IT’S TONGUE

I WAS MADE TO ATTACK
I WAS
I WAS MADE TO ATTACK
I WAS
I WAS MADE TO ATTACK
I WAS
I WAS MADE TO ATTACK
I WAS
Track Name: Wet Cigarette
HOW DOES IT FEEL WHEN YOU GO
LOOKING AROUND YOU
WALKING LIKE YOU KNOW
HOLDING A WET CIGARETTE
BUDDY, YOU’RE ASKING FOR TROUBLE I BET

LONELY YOUR WOMAN DECIDES
HAVING THEM CHILDREN
TELLING THEM LIES
HOPING IT’S ALL FOR THE BEST
BUDDY, YOU LEFT ME AND NOW I FEEL BLESSED

BROTHERS AND SIS
PEOPLE I HAVE MISSED

I HAD A DREAM YOU WERE IN
WE WERE IN LOVE AND YOU LET ME WIN
COULD IT BE SOMETHING I DREW
BUDDY, YOU CAME BACK AND NOW I FEEL NEW

BROTHERS AND SIS
PEOPLE I HAVE MISSED 
Track Name: Last Minute Boy
LAST MINUTE BOY
YOU FEEL LIKE A TOY
I PRESS ON YOUR CHEST
YOUR VOICE IS THE BEST

WHEN I SAW YOU
ALL WRAPPED UP I KNEW
I HAD TO HAVE YOU
ALL SHINY AND NEW

TRYING YOUR BEST
TO KEEP ME IMPRESSED
YOU FALL THEN YOU RISE
AND SOMETIMES DISGUISE

LAST MINUTE BOY
YOU CHARGE LIKE A TOY
YOUR STRENGTH HAS GONE DOWN
YOU POOR LITTLE CLOWN
AH AH AH

MY FRIENDS ARE JEALOUS OF YOU
THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT WE DO
HOW CAN I EXPLAIN ALL THESE GAMES
THAT PUT US BOTH UP IN FLAMES?

DON’T RUN AWAY
I THOUGHT WE COULD PLAY
A GAME THAT I KNOW
IT’S CALLED “HIT AND GO”

FIRST COMES THE LOOK
THAT MAKES YOUR KNEES HURT
AND THEN COMES THE KISS
THE ONE YOU HAD MISSED
AH AH AH

MY FRIENDS ARE JEALOUS OF YOU
THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT WE DO
HOW CAN I EXPLAIN ALL THESE GAMES
THAT PUT US BOTH UP IN FLAMES? 
Track Name: Something Real
RUSHING TO THE BED AND FIND MYSELF ON THE FLOOR
TRYING TO LISTEN TO YOUR SONG WITH MY NOSE ON THE DOOR
NOW I’M DRIVING TO YOUR HOUSE WITH MY FEET ON THE WHEEL
BUT I LOST THE CHANCE I HAD TO STEAL SOMETHING REAL
SOMETHING REAL
SOMETHING REAL

I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU LAUGH ALL THE TIME
IF I TRY TO HOLD YOUR HAND LIKE IT’S SOME KIND OF CRIME
I WOULD SHOW YOU MINE AND THAT WAS THE DEAL
BUT I LOST THE CHANCE I HAD TO STEAL SOMETHING REAL
SOMETHING REAL
SOMETHING REAL

I MESS UP
LIKE A ROOKIE
I ALWAYS HOP
WHEN YOU CALL ME

I FEEL SO SMALL
LIKE YOU KNOW ME
I FEEL SO SMALL
LIKE YOU KNOW ME

LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING COULD BE DONE OTHERWISE
BUT I’M STICKING TO THE PLAN TILL I RUN OUT OF TRIES
I WOULD SHOW YOU MINE AND THAT WAS THE DEAL
BUT I LOST THE CHANCE I HAD TO STEAL SOMETHING REAL
SOMETHING REAL
SOMETHING REAL

I MESS UP
LIKE A ROOKIE
I ALWAYS HOP
WHEN YOU CALL ME
I FEEL SO SMALL
LIKE YOU KNOW ME
I FEEL SO SMALL
LIKE YOU KNOW ME 
Track Name: Libya
GIVE ME A COIN
I’LL MAKE A FORTUNE
OUT OF NOTHING AT ALL
I’LL GO THROUGH DESERTS
BUT YOU WON’T SEE ME CRAWL
AND IF I MEET YOU ON THE WAY
I’LL BE WHOLE

SOMEBODY SAID
YOU HAD TO LEAVE
SO YOU PACKED UP YOUR BAGS
WENT OVERSEAS
OUT TO LIBYA LAND
YOU STARTED OFF BY MAKING
HOLES IN THE SAND
