Consisting of Yodashe, flop guitarist Jarvis, flip guitarist Stam, bassist Velli and drummer Nath4niel, Flakes' music is a mix of angular sonics with pop structures.

Inspired by the Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Interpol, Blur , the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the The Libertines, Editors, The Dears, Bjork, The Killers, The Kooks, Franz Ferdinand and Hard-Fi, art-punkers Flakes are a band currently based between London(United Kingdom) and Patras(Greece).

The band came together in spring 2006 when Yodashe, just a few weeks before moving to London, randomly met Jarvis, resident dj in her favorite indie club in Patras(GR).The band recorded their first demo in August 2006.
Spiky, punk guitars, drumming exhibiting un-typical indie sharpness and screaming, bluesy, provocative vocal worlds have been recorded for the band’s debut album ‘Lick your fingers, If you like it’ (Matrix studios, Noisebox Studios July 2007-june 2008) released in Greece and Cyprus by Inner Ear on the 20th of October 2008 . 
The album features songs written during the band’s ‘hot hot hot’ era, when all five members practically shared one flat while rehearsing and recording the demo.‘Lick your fingers,If you like it’ establishes the band’s artistic direction trying to merge diverse influences into a hybridized alternative soundscape.
The release will be followed by a series of concerts in major cities in Greece and the United Kingdom in early 2009.
