Melded Together Again, Wax Idols.

Melded Together Again, Wax Idols.

As their most recent press release quite rightly contends, that gothy punk types Wax Idols should hail from stereotypically sunny Californ-I-A is something of a contradiction in terms, given how gloomy their disposition has always so unerringly been. Led by self-professed ‘Dominatrix, Writer, TMI specialist’ Hether Fortune, theirs is a darkly amorphous music capable of overblown bombast and reticent introspection all at once, and When It Happens succinctly epitomises just that. The lead track from their newly melded, forthcoming Slumberland Records release Discipline & Desire, it would surely be the go-to soundtrack were there ever to be made available a shadowy antithesis to that repugnantly buoyant Visit California ad of a couple years back. For Fortune is the sort of unheralded heroine forever destined to reside in the deadened dimness cast by unfeasibly luminous pearly whites which beam down so unabatingly upon spidery outstretched gym equipment. Hers is a brawny charm however, and When It Happens may yet be that which sees her muscularly elevate herself out from the lesser known depths…

Wax Idols.
