Enigmatic London duo Two Shell have released their new EP ‘lil spirits’.

Out now via their label Mainframe Audio, the five-track project takes listeners back into their trippy cyber-world ‘’.

Blending hyperpop, nu-grunge, and UK garage, Two Shell is presenting their own perception of cyber-pop.

Along with the EP, the duo have shared a music video to their track ‘i m e s s a g e’.

Unlike your typical music video, this one is formatted in portrait and shows a mixture of warped screen recordings of iMessage conversations and blurred footage of them travelling around at night.

‘lil spirits’ tracklist includes, ‘i m e s s a g e’, ‘love him’, ‘mind_filp’, ‘bluefairy’ and ‘♡Here4U♡’.

In an interview with The Face, Two Shell spoke about their approach to community building around the project, by saying, “we want to make new ways for people to feel excited about the things they like, and to maybe change the perceived value of certain items, like music files.

“It’s also about making things accessible, we believe in letting go of our music and not having a hierarchy where the makers live up in the big oak tree and the villagers can’t get up to pick the good berries. it’s like, let’s shake this tree and let all the tasty fruit come crashing down – and we do like to think we make tasty fruit.”
