Waxflower today release their brand new single, Misaligned Love featuring the enthralling vocals of American indie pop/rock songstress Sydney Sprague. Misaligned Love is about a love connection that can never quite come to fruition, although the stars have certainly aligned for the collaboration between Waxflower and miss Sprague, and we’re so grateful for it!
“Having the wonderful Sydney Sprague feature on this track was an incredible honour & she really helped to elevate Misaligned Love to a place that we couldn’t, without her,” explains drummer Daniel Seymour.
“We’ve been huge fans of hers for a couple of years now, so when the opportunity arose with Misaligned Love, we reached out to her to feature and thankfully she agreed! She’s just finished touring with Jimmy Eat World & Dashboard Confessional, so no doubt she’ll be over in Australia soon & we can finally celebrate this track together, in person.” Listen to Misaligned Love here.
Waxflower are now gearing up to release their highly-anticipated sophomore EP, The Sound Of What Went Wrong on 29th April via Rude Records. The EP will feature most recent single, The Drama Scene, previously released singles Ring, the thumping Soak, plus unheard track Two Thumbs.
Spanning “five songs for the overthinker”, as described by frontman Tristan Higginson, The Sound Of What Went Wrong is “the EP a brain writes at 2am when it can’t sleep – picking apart every awkward moment and wrong turn, all while wondering what could have been.” Tristan’s signature heart-on-sleeve lyrics are woven through every track and are complemented by the band’s pop/rock sensibilities. Pre-order here.
Last year saw Waxflower mark the beginning of a compelling new era for the band, with single Soak alongside the official music video, which premiered on Clash Magazine. Soak, which has now surpassed 100k streams on Spotify alone, 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 (509k likes) and The Locker (318k likes), and also Apple’s New In Rock and Amazon Music’s Punk Scene and Fresh Rock.
Waxflower are currently on tour with Australian rockers, Trophy Eyes around Australia. They kicked things off at Eleven Dive Bar in the Sunshine Coast, and are now making their way around various stops including in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and more. The four-piece 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. Despite ongoing lockdowns and covid restrictions last year, Waxflower played The Zoo’s Anti-Social Series and Scorched Festival, and Ric’s Backyard in Brisbane for Mountain Goat Valley Crawl Festival, before also selling out their largest headline show to date!
