In the spring of 2020, amidst the uncertainties and challenges the world faced, two brothers, Konstantinos and Alexandros Krommidas, gave birth to a musical endeavor that would soon capture the hearts of indie rock enthusiasts across Greece. This is the story of Pink Vanity, a band whose harmonious blend of artistry has not only marked them as promising newcomers, but has also left a profound impact on the domestic pop/rock scene. At the core of Pink Vanity’s narrative lies the unique bond between Konstantinos and Alexandros Krommidas, whose shared musical vision became the foundation upon which Pink Vanity would rise. Since their inception, Pink Vanity has been steadily building a sonic repertoire that reflects their commitment to artistic exploration – to the indie pop/rock base you must add glam and rock n’ roll influences. With four singles and an EP under their belt, the band has teased audiences with glimpses of their musical identity, leaving fans eager for the culmination of their efforts — the highly anticipated debut album. Pink Vanity’s journey extends beyond the studio, as they have graced various stages with their dynamic live performances. The energy they bring to their shows is infectious!

Come are going to open for Pink Vanity and Bad Habits, they have released only on single, “The Evil”, a dynamic alt rock song, so we will let them introduce themselves: “Come is an alternative rock duo that came to life following a pagan wedding in the mountains and a summer of van life adventures in Mykonos. They always wanted to be in a heavy rock band, but who has money to bring a drummer on tour? Isn’t this a lovely way to give a playful nod to electro rock?”!!!
