Galaxxu is harsh chaotic punk free jazz improv space noise from Chicago. Their music can best be summed up with this Sonny Sharrock quote: “I’ve been trying to find a way for the terror and the beauty to live together in one song. I know it’s possible.” Galaxxu draws inspiration from Chicago’s incredible free jazz and indie scenes of the past and present, European free improv, and electronic noise to create spontaneous compositions that range from quiet, delicate serenity to an abrasive, pedal-to-the-floor assault.
