Today, our new music spotlight is on DAXX
Line-up: Marina (vocals, guitar, keys, bass, production)
About: Soft yet powerful, dark yet cheeky – DAXX’s music lives from carefully chosen contrasts. The German singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist takes you on a journey into her life, through the nightlife filled with parties and self-doubt, through states of empowerment and helplessness, constantly close to the point where you’re getting too close to be comfortable. But the simple, almost self-ironic way of presenting her songs gives even the darkest topic the little twist it needs to stay I your head and keep you excited.
What Hidden Herd say: A melting pot of delightful juxtaposition, DAXX delivers an opus that’s both delicately tender and assuredly commanding.
For fans of: Starling, Dyvr
