Σtella explains her new track and video
“Breaks create miracles and have the power to change the world’s course.” Σtella continues about the video, “I found this location one day before the shoot and my good friend Chris was moving to Berlin on the next day. So everything happened really fast, – it had to – I loved the location which is on the south part of Athens (very close to where I grew up actually), an area by the sea called Glyfada.”
