2L8 is a project of K the Clown and a team of mucisians and partners based in Thessaloniki. Their debut album “Armed Angels, Frustrated Youth, the Art of Self-Deceit and Music Industry” (2005) Poeta Negra Records, made a great impact on critics and public. “HE & SHE, Angry enough to keep loving in the dark ages” is 2L8’s second release. All the songs in the album jump in a ritualistic way, without the insistence in a specific musical form, which means there is a balance between post-rock and minimalism. The bursts of guitars, the sharp stringed instruments, the gloomy atmosphere and the opera vocals introduce a fanciful and lyrical work. All these elements in combination with the fine-crafted production create an avant-garde piece of music.
They have given shows to the most important venues in Greece, such as Gagarin 205, Bios, Kyttaro, Synch Festival (Athens), Ydrogeios, Mylos, Eightball (Thessaloniki), Rec, Lithografeio, Patra, while they participated in the Award Ceremony of Government owned Rewards of Quality of the 47th Thessaloniki International Film Festival, covering Manos Hatzidaki’s , “Ta paidia tou Peiraia”.
