Brisbane-based Waxflower have today released their brand new single, Ring. Showcasing a polished, upbeat and much poppier side of the band, frontman Tristan Higginson has explained of the track, “Ring is a more pointed look at how outside factors were feeding into my self doubt. This is probably the poppiest Waxflower song to date, we wanted to capture the essence of those huge pop/rock singles from the 2000s.” Listen here.
Last year saw Waxflower release their single, Soak alongside the official music video, which premiered on Clash Magazine. The track received its UK debut radio play on Dan P Carter’s Radio 1 Rock Show. It has also garnered solid support from Spotify where it was added to playlists including Pop Punk’s Not Dead (484k likes), the locker (139k likes) and Rock Out (76k likes), and also Apple’s New In Rock and Amazon Music’s Punk Scene and Fresh Rock.
The alt/rock 4-piece also released their EP, We Might Be Alright via Rude Records in 2021. Comprising of 5 tracks, the EP explores themes such as hopefulness, finding strength within yourself and unity. These include previously released singles Again and Not Alone, Food For Your Garden, Fake Frown and title-track We Might Be Alright. Listen here.
Waxflower have been cutting their teeth on the live scene over the last couple of years, supporting the likes of The Maine, Simple Plan and Stand Atlantic.
