“Fotiá” – Greek for “fire” – is a song about passion and listening to your heart, whether it’s the tension and release of falling in love or taking a leap of faith to follow your dreams. By combining traditional Greek sounds, driving tribal, mystical drums and modern pop melodies with sensual vocals about giving in to temptation and losing all control, Evangelia creates a unique and addictive sonic blend that pulls you in emotionally while instantly making you want to dance.
“‘Fotiá’ is such a special song for me,” shares Evangelia. “At its core, ‘Fotiá’ is about letting go and following your passion – whether it’s romantic love or doing what you love. For me, it’s both. In addition to representing my love story, the song is about truly following my passion to be an artist. We wrote the song the day after signing my record deal. I was finally living out my dream, unapologetically. The literal translation of fotiá is fire, and the way I interpret it in this song is as passion. I’ll never be the same as I was before we wrote this song; it’s a part of me now. And the people I made it with – Stolar and Alexis Troy – make this song extra special.”
