In The Spotlight

BAXTR – “Grace On Fire”

This London-based trio, consisting of Floss Mackintosh, Bash Powers and Keiko Jackson, has been friends for over 10 years. Having shared a vision of making noise together, living post-Brexit and in the midst of a Pandemic seemed to offer the perfect opportunity. With a sonic brew of 80s pop, BritPop and 90s guitar bands, they debuted their flamboyant and empowering sound on “Bloom” in 2020.

Setting the scene with glistening synth cords and sugary vocals, their new single soon pours in the nostalgia and a sparkling buoyancy. With a rich, 80s-tinged pop melody, powerful rhythm and 90s rock guitars, this track narrates the helpless feeling that comes with seeing someone you love suffer. And with a flaming instrumental break soaring high above, this is an emotive slice of vital fun and power.
