A collective led by K the Clown and comprised of greek talented musicians, 2L8 is a bold and electrifying project that has come to be categorized by their radical stylistic shifts between albums, while retaining a consistent interest in rhythm and distinct sonic accents and textures. Their music is rewarding, thoughtful and challenging and lurches deftly between emotional intimacy, ambition and uncompromising experimentation. Their two well-received previous releases, 'Armed angels, frustrated youth, the art of self deceit and music industry' & 'He & She, angry enough to keep loving in the Dark Ages' proved they are one of the most creative and compelling acts in the musical underground. Their new, funded through a PledgeMusic campaign, double album, 'New Battles without honor and humanity' is an avant-garde masterpiece of startling beauty that truly haunts the mind and it's available as a free download via their Bandcamp page. It's exhilarating and rare to hear such feverous instrumental intensity and florid arrangements based on bursting guitars, pounding drums, subtle and luminous climaxes, dramatic strings and brass, hypnotically simple melodies, inner monologues and trembling, frantically passionate vocals, desperate and bleak lyrics about resistance, equity, freedom, love and equality coupled with a sense of hope. Each song sounds like a distinct ray of light and although it's packed into something both surprisingly subversive and cohesive, it's the strength of each of them that makes the whole album stand out. A ravishing experience, a brave delight that unfurls more of its charms with every listen. It comes in a special edition with astonishing packaging and artwork
