LISTEN: BAXTR – ‘Feathers’

Following their uplifting debut offering ‘Bloom’, London alt-pop trio BAXTR are back with a catchy brand new single.

‘Feathers’ is a sunny slice of pop-punk filled with a fuzzy contagious spirit and explosive fresh energy. An empowering anthem celebrating self-love and each of our own unique beauty, it’s inspired by the band’s own journey with self image, acceptance and expression of sexuality. The band add:

“Hell hath no fury like a woman who refuses superficial, unrealistic, heteronormative beauty ideals constructed by a patriarchal society and perpetuated by systemic sexism and consumerism. Show… your… FEATHERS!”

Track Of The Day: BAXTR – ‘Bloom’

With an explosively fresh energy and tight, popping instrumentals, London trio BAXTR unveil indie greatness in their debut single ‘Bloom’.

Inspired by ’80s retro-pop, BAXTR bring a fiery energy to the modern dance canvas and paint it with a melody that will immediately leave you reaching for repeat. The rich history of the trio’s closeness is evident throughout ‘Bloom’ –  a natural chemistry spins in circles and forms its own unique sonic charisma. This joyful tone is the glue of BAXTR’s witty sound and supports the band’s feel-good drums, sunny guitar riffs and sing-along vocals.

The bounce of ‘Bloom’ is undeniable, and embodies the spirit of a best friend pulling you into the sun “in the middle of June.” It is both the pick-me-up easy car ride and the quiet summer night in a backyard with your favourite people. BAXTR have removed anything melancholy about nostalgia in ‘Bloom’ and delivered us nothing but the good memories and the lightness of noughties pop music. It’s a reassuring boost in the form of a song – reminiscent, hopeful and contagious. 

 

‘Bloom’ is out now. Listen on Spotify.
