Born and bred by the great Mother Ocean, Waxhead is one cool band. Or, as they put it: “long-haired surfer-musician tribesmen impregnating people’s souls with their cosmic vibes!” The self-described surf rats have a great love for music – their triple j Unearthed page lists the band’s love of black music, the epic rock of the late ’60s to early ’70s and the post-punk new wave of the late ’70s to early ’80s. As for their tunes, ‘Home’ is the first single to be lifted from their debut EP. Produced by their mate George Carpenter, the single has the lads aiming to capture their live sound. They’re on the road, and Torquay, you’re the lucky door prize winner. Torquay Hotel, Torquay – November 14.
