Dark times have provided impetus for electrifying Brisbane rockers WAAX’s new single This Everything, a fresh take on a lyric video and a tour.
It is almost hard to believe but their debut EP Holy Sick – and radio success with single ‘I For An Eye’, was 12 months ago. Since then the founding core trio of Marie DeVita (vocals), Tom Bloomfield (drums) and Ewan Birtwell (guitars) and newbies Chris Antolak (guitars) and Tom Griffin (bass) have recorded their second forthcoming EP at Plutonium Studios with producer Miro Mackie to lay down a new, forthcoming second EP.
DeVita went deep into the dark places for the lyrics.
“I felt myself slipping into the dark places I had been in the past. I was isolating myself socially and felt like I didn’t belong anywhere. [It] could have been far worse – but I guess when you’re in that headspace everything in life absolutely sucks,” said DeVita. “There are glimmers of hope in the line “I don’t give much, but when I do, I give a lot” – it was almost like I wanted the opportunity to warm to someone and offer them something… but I was so scared of being taken advantage of.”
