Happy Axe is multi-instrumentalist and musical polymath Emma Kelly. On her forthcoming debut album Dream Punching, Happy Axe weaves layers of vocals, violin and musical saw into a vibrant fever dream of ambient pop music. Listening to Happy Axe is a hypnotic experience. Deft melodies and atmospheric loops cascade and fold themselves around you. Entrancing patterns form and then dissolve. Inspired equally by the organic sonic landscapes of artists like Björk and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, and the brooding string-laden film scores of David Lynch and Hollywood noir, Happy Axe builds sound-worlds filled with both light and shadow. Emma has also performed around the world with shows throughout Japan, Norway, Germany and New York. Happy Axe is now a proud member of the Spirit Level family. Spirit Level is an artist-run music label based in Melbourne, co-founded by Tim Shiel and Wally De Backer aka Gotye. It is devoted to nurturing and amplifying creative voices wherever in the world they might be.

This is such a great song!!! Awesome lead guitar lines, catchy vocals, bouncy bass lines, rim-tappy goodness. Nice work lads.
