The time has come for Culture Of Digital Elegance (C.O.D.E.) to complete a journey that began to unfold before our eyes almost 2 years ago. This is none other than their new LP entitled, »No Excuses«, which was released on October 15, 2021.
»No Excuses«, includes 10 tracks, the last 4 of which (»Words«, »City Polluted«, »Stain«, »No Excuses«) gradually reached our ears through single releases and lyric videos, giving us an idea of the style and mood of the upcoming album. Alternative rock, but definitely not just that. All the musical influences of the creators, all their sonic quests and experiments, lead to a new release with entirely natural drums and bass, which differentiates them from their electronic past, but without completely eliminating it. The album includes collaborations with great musicians, such as Raphael Weinroth-Browne (Leprous, The Visit, Kamancello, Musk Ox), who plays the cello on the track »Begin«.
Culture Of Digital Elegance, almost impose on themselves the phrase »No Excuses« as a principle of life, in order to overcome any numbness and any inactivity caused by these incomprehensible times that we all live in. The lyrics, follow the same path. Social issues, personal experiences, the fragile relationship between the artists and their art and so on. The angel on the cover, exhausted and idled, just before it decides to spread its wings with »No Excuses« and finally fly.
Culture Of Digital Elegance was created in 2008 and is comprised of Vicky Fysika (vocals, lyrics), Yiannis Katsaros (guitars, vocals, lyrics), Miltos Schimatariotis (synthesizers) and Elias Goulas (drums). The cello in the track »Begin«, was played by Raphael Weinroth-Browne, while bass was played by Chris Kollias (»Sinner Art«, »Begin«, »Perfect Toy«, »Change«, »Stay Away«, »Prisoner«), Byron Tsourapis (»Words«, »City Polluted«) and Kyriakos Iglesis (»Stain«, »No Excuses«).
