"Dark, dramatic post-punk from Oakland's awesome Wax Idols. Helmed by Hether Fortune, Wax Idols have improved on their already-great debut album in just about every way. The melodies are stronger, the vocals echoed and haunting, and the playing is at an unflagging level of intensity. While early 80s Siouxsie And The Banshees and 4AD are decent reference points, the song-writing is all Wax Idols and they bring a very modern sensibility, along with sterling production help from Monte Vallier (Weekend, The Soft Moon). It's pop in the largest sense - strongly melodic, confident and impossible to ignore." - via Slumberland Records
"...they're so fucking punk they've been known to cover Christian Death's "Romeo's Distress" live (which pretty much means that a band made up of three girls and a guy has more "cajones" than an upstate NY mosh-pit)."
Vancouver punk band.
New project from Hannah Lew of Grass Widow and Greer McGettrick of The Mallard
