Felixxx from Mexico City in Mexico is the psychedelic rock quartet of Esteban (Guitar / Vocals / Synths), Chuy (Drums / Backing Vocals), Raul ( Bass / Backing Vocals) and Erick (Synths).
Extensive use of Kaoss Pads permits the musicians of Felixxx to extend notes into flying shimmers of spectral hues which float gently around the ears. Combining resonances of Andean pan pipes with progressive rock of the UK and flexing in some Brit-pop the quartet are able to offer a signature sound which spans considerable range which they deliver like a soothing hand, mopping the brow.
The listener is left with a soundscape that would resonate with works by Vonnegut as the fantastical transformations of sound lift it into the whimsical, whilst retaining a foot in the pedestrian, enabling Felixxx to deliver music, which although munificently textured are readily attainable by the mind. Whilst offering metaphysical extravagance there always remains a shrouded shaped figure which focuses the listener to seek to point a sharper clarity.
Although the music has plenty to carry the audience, one always is left feeling this would works even better in a visual context. To maximise the comprehensive and alliterative value of the music my advice is find a low-light room, nestle back with a glass of wine and hit play and at this point Felixxx makes the restful space therapeutic too.
