Brisbane-based rockers Waxflower make their triumphant return to the music scene this week with the release of Soak – the groups first unveiling of new material since the extended play We Might Be Alright earlier this year.
Produced by Australian musician and songwriter, Stevie Knight (Between You and Me, Stand Atlantic) and released via Rude Records, the “thumping and energetic” track successfully showcases an altogether more mature and compelling side to the band, with frontman Tristan Higginson’s raw and emotive vocals set against a super slick pop/punk backing that beautifully manages to capture the essence of the bands zestful spirit.
Commenting on the track Tristan says: “‘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.”
