Must Listen: The Y Axes – Patch Me Up

This new radio friendly rock pop anthem from The Y Axes will have you montaging by the first chorus. Where bubble gum singles celebrate a “shake it off” superficiality, lead singer Alexi Rose Belchere belts out a deeper more angsty dedication to loyalty with a contagious hook. No escapism here, but rather an appreciation for someone who makes you feel whole. Beautifully patterned guitar arrangements […]
