Brisbane’s five-piece punk outfit WAAX are back in the spotlight after debuting their fast paced, rollicking new single ‘Labrador’ on triple j‘s Good Nights. The track taps into raw emotion and power, culminating in a refreshing, energetic, and bombastic track which is all kinds of cool. It was recently announced that the band will appear at the now sold out Splendour In The Grass alongside the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Lorde.

WAAX put together an exclusive list for Speaker TV; from dark techno to classical jams, each member from WAAX have selected a track each from their high rotation playlist.

Ecca Vandal ft. Sampa the Great- Your Orbit

Loving this tune, it’s a super chill banger – and the video just takes it to the next level. Just total boss ladies owning the town!

Superorganism – Night Time

This group has a super interesting sound, blending pop with breakbeats and all kinds of samples. Their new single ‘Night Time’ is awesome and the video is loads of fun.

Rhapsody in Blue – George Gershwin

Growing up tootin’ the ol’ clarinet, Griff got a healthy dose of classical and jazz inspired music. This was a favourite that stuck with him over the years

Viol – Gesaffelstein

Hard, dark techno. Gesaffelstein has an incredible taste in synths and uses space to his advantage.

King And Cross – Asgier

Asgier has an almost angelic voice. Hailing from Iceland thee guys music has a unique take on the contemporary songwriters sound.
