Newaxeyes operates on the boundary of cohesion and chaos. The Seattle quartet forms an aggregate of sonic elements informed by a an ever-expanding palette of influences, musical and beyond. The results are intrinsically diverse, texturally complex, and given to equal parts menace and beauty.

“Their sound is a bleakly post-modern collage of influences and inferences, always threatening to unspool, but kept together through artful stitching and bloody-minded purpose.” —Kyle Fleck, The Stranger

“Newaxeyes don’t really sound like anybody else in Seattle… They use samplers, crazy distorted synth drums, gut shaking digital low-end, and gorgeous guitar melodies (that often descend into chaos) to make this music that sounds like the internet holding a funeral dirge for the death of humankind.” —Kelton Sears, Seattle Weekly

“Newaxeyes’ music is dark without being hackneyed, abrasive yet nuanced, psychedelic in non-obvious ways. Everything’s distorted, all of the time … Newaxeyes are Seattle’s most exciting new band.” —Dave Segal, The Stranger
