Nairobi based anti-colonial Afropunk rockers Crystal Axis share their latest single ‘Take The Throne’ scheduled for release on Friday 16th October. 

As the title suggests, ‘Take The Throne’ is a call-to-action to dismantle harmful systems designed to suppress and frustrate people all over the world while only benefitting a select few members of the ‘elite’. 2020 has illustrated that there must be a major shift in the world and ‘Take The Throne’ is a reactionary song that highlights the disillusionment of ordinary people the world over. The single also addresses issues of police brutality and corruption in Kenya and the use of government forces to suppress protestors and people the world over.

Sticking to the band’s DIY ethics, the single was tracked and recorded in Nairobi, Kenya and it was produced, mixed and mastered by Crystal Axis guitarist and founding member Djae Aroni. The artwork was created by Kenyan artists Naila Aroni and Blacky Warhol and the concept illustrates the dismantling of patriarchal structures holding back the advancement and growth of modern-day society.

‘Take The Throne’ is the first single off Crystal Axis’ upcoming 7” (7-inch.) Lunatic Express of which is scheduled for release in November.
