Wax Witches brings you 'Morning Flowers'
Morning Flowers is the next taste of the new 2016 album from Wax Witches, the alter-ego of Brooklyn via the Gold Coast expat Alex Wall. The track just premiered via Hero magazine [UK], and unusually for Wall is an honest-to-goodness love song. He says "This song was inspired by the past when I had a girlfriend ... I wanted to make it sound like the feeling of waking up on a nice sunny weekend next to someone." It follows the frenzied first single 'Habit', which BlahBlahBlahScience [USA] hailed as "two minutes of intense screechy guitar-riff-dominated bliss". Both songs precede his new album Memory Painting, which is released worldwide via Burger Records on 18th March. @thewaxwitches #waxwitches
Memory Painting is the third album in four years by Wax Witches, the project that originally began as a solo spin-off from Wall's first band, the good-time Australian garage-pop duo Bleeding Knees Club. Once again completely written, performed and recorded by Alex, the record was mastered in Detroit by Jim Kissling (King Tuff) and drops via Burger Records (home to key early releases by The Black Lips, Ty Segall and OFF!).
At the start of 2015 Wax Witches raced to Europe for a frantic February tour, playing 22 gigs in 24 days. He followed that with shows at and around South by Southwest, and closed out The Observatory stage on the first day of Burger Records' huge Burgerama Four festival alongside Weezer, Ty Segall and FIDLAR. Alongside that he's played further Australian dates with The Garden [USA], Step-Panther and Big White. Itching to get back out on the road in 2016, Wax Witches will be painting towns red in support of "Memory Painting" real soon.
Memory Painting is released on vinyl, cassette and digital on 18th March on Burger Records worldwide, via Red Eye Distribution.
