Brisbane-based alt group, Waxflower, are back with new music on the horizon. A snippet of their next chapter comes from their brand-new single “Soak” – a highly energetic track that will give you a buzz for more.
Earlier this year, we saw Waxflower drop their incredible EP “We Might Be Alright” via Rude Records. The EP consisted of five well-loved songs that delve deep into themes such as hopefulness, finding strength within yourself and unity. As that era draws to close, they open another door with “Soak.” It has all the elements of a well done pop/punk track that everyone craves. Frontman Tristan Higginson demonstrates his powerful vocals where you can hear the raw emotion within the lyrics. He explains that;
“Soak is about the lowest of lows; standing before a hopelessness that feels insurmountable. When my panic attacks were at their worst, I wanted a medicated lobotomy — I just wanted it to be done. The song zeroes in on those moments where you would give up anything for the pain to stop.”
From their previous releases up until the present day, you can see them mature and develop as a band. They have received much support across all major streaming platforms as their EP racked up over 250 thousand streams. They were also included in major Spotify playlists including Spotify’s Pop Punk’s Not Dead (447k+ likes), New Punk Tracks (227k+ likes), as well as Amazon’s Fresh Rock.
Waxflower create music that translates impeccably live. They have been known to support some of the best bands within their genre including The Maine, Simple Plan and Stand Atlantic. They have also recently played The Zoo’s Anti-Social Series and Scorched Festival, and Ric’s Backyard in Brisbane for Mountain Goat Valley Crawl Festival, and have even sold out their biggest show yet!
They are a band you would be foolish not to support. To keep up to date with future bands, be sure to follow Waxflower on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
