Chats and music with Lee Matthews from Cornish 'Supersonic Landscape of Sound' WAXX
WAXX are a duo from Cornwall in the far South West of the UK, lining up as Lee 'Pixie' Matthews on vocals & bass/guitar and Bubs Taylor on drums & backing vocals.
They have been variously described as 'a different kind of power pop’, 'indie rock with a twist of dance and chants’ and 'a supersonic landscape of sound'.
Their first release was Trip Around The Sun in 2017 and they followed up with the thrilling and brilliantly titled LP Supersonic Antidote Pop in 2018.
I recently chatted to Lee for the latest episode of our podcast and he tells us how they get their supercharged sound, lets us into some WAXX secrets and updates us with their plans for new releases and gigs in 2021/22.
As always great music guaranteed.
To get an idea of their raw power, check out this YouTube video which is a live run through of 10 songs filmed in one take with no overdubs, edits or cuts.
