Happy Axe is the experimental pop project of Canberra vocalist & multi-instrumentalist Emma Kelly. Last month she released her new single, ‘Seven Sounds’, a sweeping widescreen wonder based on Kelly’s ethereal vocals and the shifting pitch of looped strings joined at the near half way mark by a delicately patterned electronic beat. At once immediate yet distant in focus, the track’s meditative and transportive aura is now complemented visually by this beautifully shot and edited video by Jeff Anderson Jr. ‘Seven Sounds’ will appear on her debut album Dream Punching to be released later this year. The single is available through Spirit Level here.
