When Ilias Kozas, the lead singer of Koza Mostra, was composing "Alcohol is Free" one year ago, he could not even believe that the title of his song would become a symbol of freedom and optimism.

Koza Mostra become one of the most beloved bands at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö (Sweden), and despite the fact that they were awarded with the 6th place in the final winners' chart, they managed to get the 1st place in the hearts of most Europeans.

Their exquisite fusion of many music genres, including Ska, Balkan, Rock, Punk, Indie, even Rebetiko (traditional Greek music) from the interwar period, mark "Koza Mostra" as a band not really far from the top. Even one of the world's most popular and respectful band, "Hooverphonic", who happened to be present at the band's debut live appearance in Thessaloniki, (in Greece), just one day before their own concert, referred to Koza Mostra not only before but also during their concert, using the words: "Last night we watched an amazing Greek Ska band, Koza Mostra and you should grab your next chance to watch them live as well..".
