Dream Punching posits an alternate reality where trip hop, violin, musical saw, and beat-driven dream pop grow wild in the ground, waiting for trained masters like Happy Axe to dig them up, arrange them and trim them into perfect sonic bonsai.
After touring Japan in July and being nominated for two National Live Music Awards in October, Happy Axe has now accomplished a body of work that builds on the ideas of place explored in her debut EP, ‘This Topia’. Dream Punching has a sound-pallete of vocals, saw and violin, chopped, re-pitched, and crafted into experimental pop songs. This will be a once-only launch night performance where Happy Axe is joined on stage by an entourage of some of Canberra’s favourite sound making musicians. Special guests TEEM + Toby Graham.
