Bio

A bit of modern 'tude & grime' to easygoing surf culture. A little bit of thrust in hand with playful sounds. Waxhead are a 4 piece formed early 2013 up in the Byron Bay hinterland. Fascinated by black music, the epic rock of the late 60’s to early 70’s and the post punk new wave of the late 70’s to early 80’s. Drawing from their life in the waves and on the margins of the mainstream, WAXHEAD is dirty seaweed rock with a filthy lust for cheeky sounds. Stoner meets grunge then slapped in the face by New Wave. Comprising of Finny (guitar), Beggson (Drums), Moffo (bass) and Froggy (guitar and vox).
Their Debut EP ’Home’, which is a landmark in the young bands career, gives their audience a much broader scope of their artistic vision as they take you on a hallucination of intense vivid colours. With a very ambitious touring schedule in the later part of 2015 the Waxy’s are taking their ferocious live act all across Australia, Europe, Japan and Indonesia.
The plan is simple, have so much fun it becomes infectious, a motto the band won’t be soon to forget.

A roaring stoner rock tune in the vein of Kyuss with a tinge of Alice In Chains. The band puts out some great atmosphere that brings out a hot summer surfy vibe. On top of this the band rock out with great speed and precision to produce a massive ball of energy!
