Rising up in the Bay Area scene, space-pop-rock The Y Axes have recently dropped some of their most impressive works to date. Formed in 2010 as a side project, the quartet of Alexi Rose Belchere (vocals), Devin Nelson (guitar/vocals/synths) Jack Sundquist (bass) and Nick Schneider (drums) The Y Axes have been steadily releasing several new singles in advance of a forthcoming LP.
The band’s latest single, “Patch Me Up,” showcases their ability to write catchy hooks and melodies with their own unique approach to atmosphere. Belchere’s strong vocal take soars, not unlike CHVRCHES’ Lauren Mayberry as the rest of The Y Axes craft a huge alt rock sound.
We caught up with Belchere and sent her the SIMGE Survey to go along with a stream of “Patch Me Up.” Check out her answers below and, if you’re in the area, catch The Y Axes when they open for The Thermals at The Chapel on May 17th.
