Seattle experimentalists Newaxeyes play with tension and contradictions. Merging dark electronics, crystalline guitar melodies, pummeling beats and samples to refract the volatility, paranoia, and catharsis of the post-Information Age, the band spins carefully orchestrated and recklessly warped instrumentals into something entirely their own. Collaborating since 2013, Jordan Rundle (bass/synths/sampler), Bret Gardín (electronic drums/synths), Tyler Coray (guitar/sampler), and William Hayes (guitar/synths), draw inspiration from a wide variety of places and seamlessly merge them into songs that are as abrasive as they are cinematic. Members of Newaxeyes have played guitars on Jóhann Jóhannson's score to Panos Cosmatos' ("Beyond the Black Rainbow") Nicolas Cage-starring film Mandy (2018), the newest Myrkur album Mareridt (2017), toured as live keyboardist of Wolves In The Throne Room, and contributed electronic drums to post-punk pioneers Sort Sol's Stor Langsom Stjerne (2017).
