You can feel it in the pulsing drum beat that jumps out from the speakers on first listen of this debut WAX IDOLS 7-inch. It’s simply the sound of raw guts, hot sweat, and pelvic pain, and it’s got that sweet yet snarling catchiness, coupled with an antagonistic kick that’s exactly what you need right now. A dazzlingly ferocious, fuzz-filled debut single that flashes right by, with screaming hooks and that unavoidable throbbing beat tugging you in deeper and deeper, with each listen. Wax Idols are the brainchild of HEATHER FEDEWA, formerly of BARE WIRES and HUNX & HIS PUNX (and currently of BLASTED CANYONS), a firecracker in every sense of the word, and a one-woman noise pop machine that’s assembled a brutish ensemble of players backing her up. Employing a rotating cast of SF Bay-area heads such as MATT HARTMAN (SIC ALPS) and currently two of the ladies from the SPLINTERS, it all coalesces into an impressively bombastic concoction here, rendering two volatile hits you won’t be able shake out of your pant legs any time soon. Edition of 500 copies.
