"Come along to the Centre Of The Universe. There is only room in outer space for two of us. Hold my hand and we'll fly into the sun."
Wax Witches’ first release, 2013's "Celebrity Beatings" was born out of a particular set of circumstances - bored at home alone between Bleeding Knees Club tours, Wall taught himself to record and came up with a collection of bratty lo-fi songs that reflected his formative influences of Cali punks The Descendents and Black Flag. Touted as a side project, Celebrity Beatings surpassed expectations after receiving support from national broadcaster triple j and community radio alike, alongside a US release via LA based label Burger Records, home to releases by The Black Lips, Ty Segall and OFF!
Mixed by Berkfinger (Feelings and Philadelphia Grand Jury) at his Golden Retriever studio in Berlin, and mastered by Dan Walker (The Death Set) in New York, the 11 songs on "Centre Of Your Universe" reel in a wider set of reference points.
Lyrically, “Centre Of Your Universe” touches on typical twentysomething concerns of awkwardness (“Social Introvert”) and celebrity worship culture (“I’m Not Your Idol So I Shouldn’t Be Yours”, sung by Wall’s teenage sister Grace), but it also examines rock’s mythical death club (“Twenty Seven”) as well as including joyous odes to sun and beer (“Summer Suckers”) and burritos and Xbox (“Head Shave”).
