About

We are AXLS, an electronic trio formed in 2018 in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Our synth-led sound features dreamy female vocals and low slung bass.

Our debut album - 'First Contact' - is an electronic concept album which explores the story of Earth's first encounter with an extraterrestrial 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.

If concept albums aren't usually your thing, read our below reviews and you may just change your mind!

"If you stopped reading at the words “concept” and “album” then you need to hurry back, because this release is packing fistfuls of great electronic pop songs that are thrumming with soaring melodies and dancefloor friendly beats."
The Crack Magazine
"First Contact succeeds on so many levels; the most obvious being that it’s a piece of perfect pop music. 5/5."
Narc Magazine
"To my knowledge this has never been done before. It's a very rare beast indeed - a catchy electro pop progressive concept album!"
