Turn on, tune in, drop out, and press play on Red Axes’ “Into Your Arms,” premiering on Billboard Tuesday (May 30). The Tel-Aviv-based dance duo live their musical life on the blurry edge of rock ‘n’ roll and soulful synthetics, and they must have dusted off their dad’s cassette collection for this one.
Singer Adi Bronicki muses through a muffled filter with off-kilter, childlike wonder. It’s got a psych-pop sheen seen similar to the dreamier side of Jefferson Airplane or The Velvet Underground. One hit of this and your head will feel like it’s floating in sepia-fantasy for a solid two-and-a-half minutes, no hangover.
Speaking on the song, Red Axes says cryptically:
“This song doesn’t mean anything
The singer is the red queen
What you think is true
Ponder the implications, and look out for the Red Axes’ upcoming LP The Beach Goths out on July 29 and available for pre-order today.
