Single of the Day: WAAX “Wild & Weak” (2017)

Mate. If you haven’t listened to WAAX, then you’ve been depriving your ear holes of one of Australia’s best up-and-coming acts. Fronted by the slightly manic and immensely talented Marie De Vita, the group melds raw energy with potent lyrical themes.

The Brisbane five-piece have dropped a third taste of their upcoming EP, this time the title track “Wild & Weak”. The track is explosive and emotive, yet rendered to show the mature direction the group have been exploring.

Marie explains that the Wild & Weak EP will have a more introspective direction, “these songs are a step by step documentation of what I went through – the steps of finding peace with my past.”

Those steps, they’re all there.
Step 1. The Denial (‘Wild & Weak’)
Step 2. The Disorientation (‘This Everything’)
Step 3. The Pattern (‘Same Same’)
Step 4. The Discussion ‘(Nothing Is Always’)
Step 5. The Acceptance (‘You Wouldn’t Believe’)
