Self-titled Debut Out March 4th, 2014 on Captured Tracks
One the newest member of the Captured Tracks family, Axxa/Abraxas, the musical moniker of 23 year-old Atlanta native Ben Asbury will be releasing his self titled debut on March 4th.
The first taste of his debut came from the jangling guitar pop track “I Almost Fell”. Now you can stream the equally sunny, but meditative single, “On the Run”. It’s clear from these tracks, Asbury has a knack for creating infectious, bubbly synth pop jams that retain lyrical substance.
Axxas/Abraxas is the music and art project of 23 year-old Atlanta native Ben Asbury. The name is derived from two principles that Asbury associates together, one deeply personal, one spiritually dichotomous. Their seamless integration into one sentiment echoes the sonic and visual elements of Axxas/Abraxas.
His music takes inspirations from 60’s pop, punk rock, post rock, Elephant Six Indie rock, 60’s psychedelia, Neil Young and Television Personalities. Creating his own cohesive adaptation of psych art-pop, a combination of fuzzy psych and DIY silkscreen imagery. To bring the debut to life Jarvis Taveniere was enlisted (Woods, Rear House Recording) to record and produce.
