Making no holds barred, loud and anthemic garage rock, ARXX embody an empowering unapologetic essence. Ahead of their show with Spectrum Gigs this Wednesday at Strongroom Bar, we get to know ARXX a little better; from the first artists they saw live to who they’d want to play their birthday party, get to know them In Short.

Playing with the expectations of “what they ‘should’ be as women and artists” the gal pal duo’s songs are powerful, high-velocity and infinitely danceable. They join Winnaretta and If I Had A Hifi for a revitalising mid-week show courtesy of the wonderful Spectrum Gigs.

Ahead of the gig this Wednesday listen to ARXX’s latest single and get to know them In Short…

“Spectrum is a promotions collective championing music by women, PoC and LGBTQIA+ folx. Gigs are every month at Strongroom bar and are free entry! Interested in playing? Drop us a line at spectrumgigs@gmail.com”.
