For Fans Of: The Bronx, Biffy Clyro, Baroness, Hot Snakes and Titus Andronicus. The Northern Irish trio Axis of has been winning hearts throughout Europe since the release of their debut album 'Finding St. Kilda' in 2012. Their records espouse their deep love of music, meeting new people and travel: "The touring we do completely shapes our music and lyrics," explains Ewen Friers (lead singer and bassist). And on their latest offering, 'The Mid Brae Inn' this is taken to fascinating new emotional heights. Recorded in the grip of an Irish winter, the daily trek to the recording studio proved to be a mission in itself: "There were deep snow storms and havoc on old coastal roads. One morning our van's exhaust was ripped off by a wave." The band succumbing to the sea is an apt metaphor for 'The Mid Brae Inn'. Across it's eleven tracks, distorted bass swells and soars whilst guitars foam with effervescent hooks, one can almost taste the salt in the air on album highlights: "Wetsuit", "Beachcombing" and "Quarrel Reef". The sound that the bass-player-fronted three-piece has crafted is simultaneously melodic and thunderous - drawing comparison to the sound Biffy cultivated on their crossover 'Only Revolutions'
