Happy Axe and Sawa Angstrom

Ambient pop artist Happy Axe joins Japanese band Sawa Angstrom for a night of music in Brunswick.

Sawa Angstrom frequent the art galleries and beer houses of Kyoto, with their voices, synthesizers, and samplers. Their minimalistic improvised performances and melancholy songs are beautiful and infectious. They have just returned from a European tour, and this is a rare opportunity to see them while they are in Melbourne.

Happy Axe is multi-instrumentalist and musical polymath Emma Kelly. Happy Axe weaves layers of vocals, violin and musical saw into a vibrant fever dream of ambient pop music. Watching a performance by Happy Axe is a hypnotic experience. Deft melodies and atmospheric loops cascade and fold themselves around you. Entrancing patterns form and then dissolve.
Inspired by the organic sonic landscapes of artists like Björk and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Happy Axe builds sound-worlds filled with both light and shadow.
