Listen to SEAXES
They pronounce it “Saxes”.
But whichever way you say the name of this barnstorming Chicago-based duo, they sound brilliant. At times simmering with rage, at times fully boiling over, they play fast but not really loose, wild-eyed but wicked smart.
Their self-titled debut EP, out this week, is essential listening for fans of Shellac, These Arms Are Snakes, and Coliseum. It’s times-like-these turned into songs. Apocalypse rock!
