CHECK STOCK!!! Received a 7.1 rating from Pitchfork. "Oakland four-piece WAX IDOLS reinvigorate the mutated aesthetics of varying strains of post-punk, post-hardcore, and classic pop-rock. HETHER FORTUNE's powerful voice (as songwriter, arranger, producer, singer, and guitarist) is at the center, but the group’s work together is what makes Wax Idol’s energy so vital. Their fourth album Happy Ending is an exploration of the abstraction and finality of death from philosophical, political, and personal perspectives. Despite the heavy subject matter, Hole drummer Patty Schemel notes the collection’s 'amazing pop melodies [found] inside dark, soulful soundscapes' and the Mars Volta’s Cedric Bixler-Zavala calls it 'a glacial invocation of anthemic horizons.'"
