Hapax is a postpunk synth wave project from Naples, that combines 80s dark-wave sounds with modern experimental/industrial arrangements. The duo was formed in 2014 and consists of Michele Mozzillo (vocals, bass, synth, lyrics) and Diego Cardone (guitar, synth, programming, artwork). Their debut "Stream of Consciousness" (2015) got a very positive response from both the fans and Audioglobe’s customers! Their second album "Cave" followed in 2016.
Their third 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.
