"Historia de la Espuma" is a collection of nine songs that respectively comprise the soundtrack of nine video pieces by acclaimed Catalan artist David Bestué.
The idea was to record in a totally different way than we had done before. We did not use any electric bass, electric guitars or even a proper drum kit in order to achieve a folk, lo-fi feeling, as if the songs were recorded by a group of friends fooling around in some living room with whatever instrument they could get their hands upon. The videos are conceptually complex but have a very home-made feeling therefore the music had to go that way as well. We nevertheless conserved the principal characteristics of every Evripidis and his Tragedies´song: dark humor, hopeless romanticism, rich vocal harmonies and classically-tinged (and at times thundering) pianos.
Those songs had been previously unreleased apart from "Our Trash". "Lights out" was re-recorded for our 2011 album "A Healthy Dose of Pain".
