Brisbane’s WAXFLOWER today unveil “Food For Your Garden“, the final single from their upcoming EP “We Might Be Alright“, out Friday 16th April through Rude Records. The single premiered last night on triple j’s Home & Hosed. “Food For Your Garden” details the experience of accepting how relationships may change, while valuing the lessons learned with those changes.
“It’s about running from your past and avoiding personal change by trying to find it in another”, reveals frontman Tristan Higginson. “Regardless of how a relationship ends, you learn from it, you live with it and so do they. Sometimes you aren’t meant to be in someone’s life, and that’s fine.You may as well let your time together be the fertiliser that helps you grow”.
The arrival of “Food For Your Garden” follows previous singles “Not Alone” and “Again”, which garnered support from the likes of 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 + 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.
