Axe and the Oak
Miami, like any other major city, breeds special talent and thankfully for us, my good friend Myles Kaplan is part of that growing influence. Axe and the Oak's heavy bass line and calculating drums are perfectly complimented by the haunting vocals. One thorough listen is enough to send me into the similar trances that favorites like Echo & The Bunnymen and Bauhaus have been doing since I was 15 years old. I've always felt that classic acts like the aforementioned would only be humbled by knowing that true fans can evoke similar feelings with their own music. Luckily for you and I, this unsigned gem will be playing live at the Monterrey Club in Ft. Lauderdale on September 25th. Enjoy the ear candy and make sure to check them out!
