Axis:Sova (Free Show)

Fresh from supporting TY SEGALL in London AXIS:SOVA play a special free entry show in the bar.

Saturday 12th October

Axis: Sova
Damaged guitars riding atop motorik, vintage drum machine beats… Bothered and brooding harmonized vocals… these are the ingredients that make up the particular punk of Axis: Sova. The natural truth is that Axis: Sova has always been a rock band, even when the “band” was just Brett Sova and his Roland TR66 drum machine creating a surging maelstrom of reverberant fuzz, guitars foregrounded and wailing at length, while beats distended the depths. Through the years, though, this amorphous thing has grown into a group. Evolution is unavoidable, man—eventually, you just have three heads and that’s all there is to it! Shampoo You, the latest LP (out on God? Records, Ty Segall’s imprint for Drag City) sounds the arrival of the trio version in trademark Axis style: relentless tempo with distorted, interlocking guitar concussions, and vocals that howl of otherworldly mutations. This time, however, they’ve honed in on a sleek transport for their new sounds, with tightly conceived power-punk and classic pop touches creating memorably melodic contours. This is the group-mind in action—the trio of Tim Kaiser, Jeremy Freeze and head Axisman Brett Sova, whose new tunes demanded a radical clarity and got it, too. Head down to the scar wash and slip into neutral — let Axis: Sova Shampoo You.
