"Overlaying the IMF video with subtitled commentary, FYTA punctures the monotonously familiar coming-out narratives of well-groomed, largely white, male, upper-middle-class professionals with viciously snarky political and psychoanalytic critique."

"they are the worst artists but i love them the most"
"their happening started wonderfully (...) but degenerated - like all things Greek"
"I know their soft and eerie songs twist around in ways I’ve never heard before."
"The notion of a 'second nature' and naturalized social relations are their favorite themes. FYTA is a metaphor for the naturalizing enterprises of quotidian Greek identity. FYTA are so 'quotidian' that they become self-sarcastic - a subversive affirmation best captured by their appropriation of various vegetables as moods, objects of desire, even sexual partners."
Kostis Stafylakis, "Moralism and the (Greek) crisis of cultural resistance: an anti-humanist approach"
"...Their lyrics are like a hit on your head. you don't understand it at the beginning, you laugh and then you see the blood and freak out. "

"last week I received a note on the participation of a group of artists at this year’s Biennale in Athens: “Their intention is a psychoanalytic disruption of dominant narratives, including those of gender and mainstream social radicalism. Their ‘messthetics’ combine scattered references to Dada poetry, post-punk edge, pseudo-traditional echoes, anti-Greek claims and the use of overt dyslexia.” And this in a country that needs plain speaking now more than ever.”
"If Gilbert & George were Greek, musicians, starting (...) they'd be FYTA"
"You are even worse than Plato"
