Coachella Q&A: Red Axes
Two friends, machines, psychedelia, potions, and an unconditional passion for music, sound and motion. We're talking about the eclectic Israeli dance duo of Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi, better known as Red Axes. Their music itself is like riding a roller coaster: slow grooving passages can shift on a dime into fast thrill-ride riffs. There's an exhilarating freedom of movement within each song and unpredictability between sounds.
We had the opportunity to host a Q&A with Red Axes leading up to their performance at this year's Coachella Music Festival where we covered everything from what's in their travel survival bag, which fellow-performer they're most excited to see and more!
