AXLS are an electronic trio formed in 2018 in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Their music is an odyssey of electronica, cool synths, heavenly vocals and low-slung bass. They take influence from old school electro like Kraftwerk and The Human League, mixed with modern bands like CHVRCHES and LCD Soundsystem.
Their debut concept album, ‘First Contact’, arrived in early 2020. The album followed the tale of humanity’s battle with an alien race and each track represents a different chapter of the story. The group are now planning to release a few singles before moving onto their next big project. ‘discotek’ is an electropop dance track and is the first to be released.

about the track
‘discotek’ is a dance track, packed with electropop goodness. The song is a floor filler and represents how it feels to get lost in good music, that feeling when you’re dancing your heart out and just don’t want to stop. Music can transport a person away from their worries and allow them to live in the moment – that’s what discotek is all about.

AXLS’ debut album - 'First Contact' - is an electronic concept album influenced by the sci fi landscapes of Bladerunner, 2001 and John Carpenter which explores the story of Earth's first encounter with an extra-terrestrial race. The newcomers enslave humanity with their addictive, immersive virtual reality. Only Alias, a young girl, has the power to resist and lead the fight back. Each song represents a chapter of the story. Narrative aside, the album is packed with plenty of synthpop goodness you can dance the night away to.
