Marsheaux \ Biography

Marsheaux (Marianthi Melitsi and Sophie Sarigiannidou) are a synthpop duo from Athens, Greece.

Formed in 2003, Marsheaux have so far released four albums: Ebay Queen (2004), Peek-a-Boo (2006), Lumineux Noir (2009) and Inhale (2013), as well as remixing a host of artists including Depeche Mode, Moby, Gwen Stefani, Hurts and OMD. Both girls handle vocals and are every bit as sophisticated as their Europhone moniker, itself derived from the first syllable of their first names.

Other favourite Marsheaux words? Sophie's choice is sokolata (the Greek word for chocolate) and for Marianthi, diakopes (vacation).

The girls also pack a mean electronic punch. Marianthi plays Microkorg, Minimoog, Roland SH101, Speak & Math and Yamaha CS01. Sophie plays Microkorg, Korg MS-10, Roland Alpha Juno 2, Akai AX80, and Roland CR-78.

Les Disques du Crépuscule issued Odyssey, a compilation of old and new tracks (TWI 1151 CD), in December 2013. Watch the clip for 2012 single Inhale here:
