Brisbane-based Waxflower have revealed their music video for latest single, Ring following its premiere on New Noise Magazine. Showcasing a polished, upbeat and much poppier side of the band, the video can be seen here.
“I think there is a lot to unpack with Ring. Maybe more to the song than at face value,” shares guitarist and co-director Nick Hargans. “For this video I wanted to really let the song have its own platform and speak for itself, so when making the video and the concept we spent more time playing on the lyrics and putting Tristan inside some of the scenarios that are in the lyrics.” Co-director Giles Higginson adds, “With the Ring video we wanted to represent the song in a very literal way by using different scenes to pair with the lyrics. We tried to keep things pretty tongue in cheek to go along with the playful undertones that ride below the serious notes of the song.”
Last year saw Waxflower release their single, Soak alongside the official music video, which premiered on Clash Magazine. The track, 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 (499k likes), the locker_ (165k likes) and Rock Out (78k 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 Againand 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. Despite ongoing lockdowns and covid restrictions last year, Waxflower were able to play 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!
