Local rock band Axis has released a new self-titled EP on its bandcamp page Tuesday, July 15, free for all to listen and download.
The band is comprised of three Pawling musicians – PPR intern Joseph Phillips on vocals and bass, Jasper Kelsey on guitar, and Tyler DiRoma on drums. The record was produced by local musician, Chris Kelsey, who is also Jasper’s dad.
The band takes heavy influence from Black Sabbath, Rush, and Jimi Hendrix, with a modern edginess to bring a sound that is unlike any other in the 2010’s.
A series of shows in the local area in promotion of the release will kick off with Pawling Public Radio’s Summerfest on August 23.
