They say the grass is always greener on the other side, but in their latest music video Brisbane’s Waxflower are showing that’s not always the case. “Food For Your Garden” is the final single from the band’s upcoming EP “We Might Be Alright”, out Friday, April 16th through Rude Records. Today they have shared a brand new music video for the track.“Food For Your Garden” details the experience of accepting how relationships may change, while valuing the lessons learned with those changes.
“‘For the ‘Food For Your Garden’ music video, we wanted to refrain from directly replicating the lyrical themes and more-so let them speak for themselves,” the band shares. “We chose a theme of greenery to tie together a fun & light-hearted vibe that still relates back to the song”.
“Food For Your Garden” follows previous singles “Not Alone” and “Again”, which garnered support from the likes of Australia’s triple j and triple j Unearthed, Kerrang!, Alt Corner, Happy Mag, Hysteria, Rock Sound, Upset, Dead Press, Upset, idobi Radio,and more. The band also received additions to Spotify’s New Punk Tracks, Pop Punk’s Not Dead, as well as Apple Music’s New In Alternative, New In Rock, Rise And Grind,and Amazon’s Fresh Rock.
Fresh from releasing a trio of standout singles that saw them conquer their debut headline shows in February 2020, including a sold-out hometown performance, Waxflower returned in June with their hard-hitting single, ‘Sixteen Floors’. Released alongside the announcement of their signing to independent European label Rude Records (Saves The Day, Gideon, Blood Youth, Sleep On It), ‘Sixteen Floors’ clocked up support from international heavyweights Kerrang! and Rock Sound, as well as being named the ‘Next Big Thing’ by HMV.
In September, Waxflower followed up with a powerfully poignant stripped back single, ‘Getting Better’, which saw their success grow both domestically and across the globe. To close out the year, the band returned with ‘Again’, a taste of a new era for the Brisbane pop punk four-piece which received both domestic and international support from the likes of Happy Mag, Hysteria, triple j Unearthed, triple j, Kerrang!, and Rock Sound.
Waxflower have been growing an impressive resume of supports for such a young band, having shared the stage with the likes of Between You & Me, Stand Atlantic, Sly Withers & more as well as supporting US giants Simple Plan and The Dangerous Summer.
Taking reference from 2000’s legends Kisschasy & Jimmy Eat World, Waxflower merge nostalgia with progressive melodies and catchy hooks to bring a genuine and unique perspective on alternative rock.
