Still Living In Caves
The Fall Of Man
Label: Swiss Dark Nights (2019)
One of Italys most popular, leading Postpunk/Electro acts: HAPAX, are back with a bang! Hapax are composed by Michele Mozzillo - vocals, bass, sequencers and Diego - guitars, sequencers. Their 3rd album release Monade stands out as their so far most introspective album, combining typical electro - post punk tunes with menacing live drums by Fabio Maffi.
The album is based on the dramatic idea, that there is a hopeless gap between words and reality and that each attempt to speak, triggers a distressing conceptual catch. Language deconstruction unhinged the modern man from faith in words, conceived as expression of the Absolute Truth. World coordinates become then unclear: we can either anchor in the past and look outside through the deforming lens of memory, or turn ourselves to the vision of a comforting but fictional Eternity.
This third release is a work about the impossibility to communicate, since communication is just an artifact of the so-called real. And still Monade keeps endlessly playing with the foolish (auto)illusion of its possibility
