Yesterday, Big Scary Monsters announced the signing of London based instrumental/indie-rock/pop four-piece AXES. Along with the announcement, the band unveiled their forthcoming debut single Wet Wet Wet Wet and a video to go with it.
AXES may have found a nice little niche for themselves with their own brand of indie-inspired instrumental music. Some of the band’s influences are clear from the offset with Wet Wet Wet Wet sounding remarkably similar to a certain Los Campesinos song in places, whilst giving a nod to label-mates Mutiny On The Bounty and Talons in other places. Regardless, it’s refreshing to hear a different take on the instrumental genre, and one would assume they are going to be a very exciting prospect on the live stage. Check out their upcoming live dates below.
November 15th: London, The Black Heart w/ Empire! Empire! & The Reptilian
November 16th: Manchester, The Fuel Cafe w/ Burning Buildings
