Ella Thompson has signed her band Axolotl to Melbourne based management group Blank Tape.  Cesar Rodrigues will be representing the band in Australia as the band put the finishing touches on their debut EP due out mid 2012. AXOLOTL join a roster that includes Texture Like Sun, Jo Schornikow, Harmless and Kate Vigo. Cesar recently directed the bands first film clip for their debut single “Garden Lane” which premiered on Triple J’s Home & Hosed program as well as receiving rave reviews from presenters and punters alike. Cesar says of the relationship, “It was a natural progression from working on the “Garden Lane” video, and we are excited at the opportunities this relationship will create. They are harboring a new sound that will undoubtedly make a strong statement here and abroad this year.” The band has also recently begun a partnership with booking agent Niche Productions, and will be supporting Bonobo (Ninja Tune) at The Corner Hotel on the 5th of March 2012.
