ABOUT US

@HeavyWaxBand

Recently formed Gold Coast 7-piece Roots group HEAVY WAX come hot off the pan ready to serve up their high-energy Rock-Soul-Funk-Reggae mash. For those in search of hi-fidelity music with feeling, solid beats and that extra punch only a horn section can deliver, these guys could just be your new favourite band.

Though still in their infancy, HEAVY WAX have a discernible raw sound emerging, underpinned by a gritty rhythm section and brazen 3-piece horn section which accentuates singer Quin Samin’s soulful melodies. Referencing eclectic mixtape compilations they draw upon Soul, Reggae, 70’s Funk and Fusion - any inspiration from the ‘pre-digital’ era. Like a kid rummaging through their parents’ crate of old vinyl and stumbling upon an analogue gem, these guys are striving for sounds that evoke emotion which can only be achieved by way of authentic musicianship on acoustic instruments.

A group of mates drawn together by a passion for playing live music, their story starts years prior to the formation of HEAVY WAX. Coming from different musical backgrounds then brought together by party band Madison Kat, they are well settled in each others’ company both musically, and as long-time friends. Following this extensive time spent honing their craft on stage, they now fulfil a dream of recording original music in the studio.

HEAVY WAX are excited to produce the unexpected, whilst still making music that is digestible. With so many stylistic influences and an open-minded approach, they leave the door ajar creatively to avoid being boxed in to a specific genre. HEAVY WAX should be on all music lover’s radars in 2021!

HEAVY WAX RELEASE "BOURBON ST. SWINDLER" TO COINCIDE WITH BLUES ON BROADBEACH FESTIVAL

“Bourbon St. Swindler”, the latest single from HEAVY WAX is an energetic New Orleans style blues-funk song.


The story is about a deceptive, shady character who does a lot of self promotion but never delivers on his promises.
Featuring their dynamic horn section, the song begins with the trombone blasting out a street-vibe blues riff. By the end, the song climaxes in an all-out jam that wouldn't be out of place in a live bar on the famous Bourbon St.

You can see us performing this song live, this Sunday night at @bluesonbroadbeach from 7:30pm on the Victoria Park stage. Can we get a soul clap?! 👏 🎶

HEAVY WAX HIT THE GROUND RUNNING WITH SOUL-ROCK BANGER “CLEMENTINE”

NEW MUSIC!
Our new single 'Clementine' is
out Now!


Clementine is a classic love story of romance that's lost and then returned.
The straight up and down, no-fuss Soul-Rock track was written in Reidy's basement. "It was just a simple vintage soul-rock feel that felt right. Quin had lyrics that he had wanted to use for some time and they fitted nicely".
