We’re delighted to welcome Brighton’s joyous jazz voyagers Wax Machine on April 29th!
An exquisite combination of psychedelic folk and spiritual jazz. Their music aims for the stars – and we cannot wait to go on this journey with them. Take us away…
“Transporting you away from your worries to a trancelike state of relaxation… 60s’ style psychedelia mixed with experimental folk rock and frenzied flute playing” – Breaking Glass Mag
Brighton’s Wax Machine are a band so steeped in the kernel of psychedelic seep that there’s every indication they may have slipped through a side door in space-time and sprouted anew a few years back on the UK coast. However, for all intents and purposes it’s best to believe that they truly sprang from the fertile mind of Brazilian-born, Italian/English-raised Lau Ro (Guitar/Vocals). Lau’s international upbringing served as the wellspring for some of the eclectic taste that informs the core of Wax Machine’s sound. On ‘Earthsong of Silence’, that eclecticism incorporates Spiritual Jazz, Krautrock, Tropicália and Library Music while filtering them all through a psychedelic lens.
Wax Machine are kindred spirits, or perhaps the channeled chosen brought back to life for a new era. Their sound coalesces within ‘Earthsong of Silence’. They skirt the blade like full force psych-folk warriors, but also skitter through more OUT territory — clattering odysseys that resolve to map nowhere and everywhere are nestled next to propulsive grooves that lap at head-nodding ecstasy. As they slide into the second half of the album they infuse the turbulent “Turiya” with the spirit of Hapshash & The Coloured Coat if they’d been produced by Joe Byrd. Wax Machine are on both sides of the mirror, and with Earthsong of Silence they’re showing the rest of us the way through. The only question remains if you’ll follow them.
“Wax Machine take influence from an interesting brew of groups across the globe, such as Os Mutantes, Can, Alice Coltrane and Fripp… makes for a melting pot of kaleidoscopic, funky and sometimes even surreal sounds” – Moof Mag
