The Y Axes are a post-apocalyptic alternative pop band from San Francisco. Drawing influence from a myriad era of popular and esoteric music, they have refined a unique style that is often anthemic but always bittersweet. Intricate melodies, contagious hooks, and snapping rhythms help drive their compelling stories of coming of age in chaos and finding love in the direst of situations. The Y Axes are pop for music nerds.

Sit Kitty Sit has flat out invented the term “Classical Rock”. No question. San Francisco‘s Kat Downs (piano/vox) and Mike Thompson (drums) create an undeniable pop/proggy piano and drum duo which has been described as Dresden Dolls mixed with King Crimson and Fiona Apple. Following their initial debut EP “The Push”, SKS became known for consistently thrilling audiences with their energetically intense live performances. No holds barred, this group produces addictive rock n’ roll – with only two people, and not one guitar in sight.
