The Wax Birds – Slow Rise

a0023301253_16The Wax Birds consisting of Jo and Pete Green, moved out to NZ from the UK in 2016. Having spent more than half of their lives playing in various bands and outfits, it took the 2020 Covid lockdown to finally bring their own music to life, resulting in their debut album “Slow Rise”, consisting of 9 original songs, released in Nov 2020.

In Dec/Jan 2020/21 they spent the Summer touring the North Island of NZ. They are currently working on new material, focusing on a stripped back Acoustic sound. The duo comments: “All songs written and recorded from our tiny house on wheels, in the middle of nowhere, where it’s ALWAYS windy, in New Zealand.”

Being a predominantly acoustic duo, all tracks have acoustic undertones with everything else acting as a playground around it. Lyrically, the album is a cross section of love, life and liquor

The album is available on Bandcamp.
