San Francisco-based space-pop/post-Americana rockers the Y Axes have debuted the second single, “How We Begin,” from their forthcoming album, No Waves.
The band’s lead singer, Alexi Rose Belchere, reflects on the sentiments behind “How We Begin”: “The song is about living in a hopeless time where it feels like I’m drowning in a constant feed of information and being suffocated by a paralyzing fear of the future. It reminds me that fear of the unknown needs to be transcended in order to carry on. It’s basically about how the world sucks and I can’t get absorbed by it if I’m going to carry on living.
The video documents a summer of touring together and recording the upcoming album No Waves. Shot by friends and fans, it features performances at Bay Area venues Bottom of the Hill and Makeout Room, festivals such as Ocean Beach Music and Arts Festival and Gold Rush, and tour shows and house parties around California.”
