The Y Axes on blending pop music and science fiction

Apr 9, 2019

In this edition of Bay Area Beats, Alexi Rose Belchere and Devin Nelson from the Y Axes talk about using science fiction to express emotional concepts and how San Francisco ties into their music.

"I got into like the idea of writing sci-fi themes to our music because I found there were some aspects of emotions that I wasn't able to express without putting some sort of metaphor on top of it."

What started off as a hobby for Alexi and Devin turned into an out of this world space pop group: the Y Axes. Eight years in, they continue making music with an upbeat, catchy pop sound — but their lyrics tell a different story.
