Fresh from the release of their Remix EP 5G, Northlane are backing it up with a new EP release called 2D.
The 5-tracker features acoustic versions of fan-favourites from the band’s Alien era, including recent cut “Rift”.
Northlane vocalist Marcus Bridge explains how 2D adds another dimension to these tracks: “Recording an acoustic EP is something that we’ve wanted to do for quite some time and felt right with the personal nature of the songs from Alien. I wanted to strip these songs back to the bare minimum to juxtapose the soundscapes of the album, a 2D version of sorts. A song like “Rift” has a completely different energy in this context and took on new meaning with the recording in the depths of lockdown, now almost feeling like a cry of frustration and despair.”
