Axons is Chicago-based songwriter and producer Adele Nicholas. Blending pop melodies, gritty guitars, wispy synthesizer lines and thumping drum machine lops, Axons makes dance music with a bleeding punk rock heart.
Axons' debut EP Inter Vivos is out now on a hand-dubbed, limited-edition cassette with art from Chicago-based visual artists Jenny Lang. Axons' live show features Adele performing as a one-woman band, looping percussion, synths, guitars and vocals in real time.
Axons regularly as part of a monthly series called "Bloops and Bangers." Co-sponsored by Chicago record label Notes + Bolts and Brainstorm Comics,Bloops and Bangers brings together Chicago MCs, ambient musicians and visual artists for an evening of cross genre collaboration ad improvisation on the second Thursday of each at Brainstorm Comics in Wicker Park.
When she's not Axons, Adele is a civil rights lawyer, half of Love and Radiation and the guitar player in Puritan Pine.
Her EP Inter Vivos is available here.
