Delivering countenance of truths we all need to hear, Brisbane rockers Semantics blend the seriousness of R U OK day with Ben Lee's We're All In This Together optimism to check in with the mental health of humanity on their sophomore EP, If You're Not Alright" - Music Is My Muse. True to punk-rock philosophy, Semantics spares no effort to connect with their listeners on a personal level on and off the stage to remind fans that it's alright if you're not alright. Since their pivotal stand-alone single, 'Cemeteries' debuted on triple j's Short.fast.loud last year, Semantics have been hard at work refining their craft to match their newfound direction. Describing their sound as "somewhere between punk-rock, indie, emo and Aussie rock" the Brisbane quartet returns with their sophomore EP, 'If You're Not Alright'. Sounding like the likes of Violent Soho, The Menzingers & Title Fight, each song is unique, containing its own lyrical message within the overarching theme of the challenges of maintaining one's well-being while transitioning into a working-class lifestyle.
Fresh from releasing a trio of standout singles that saw them conquer their debut headline shows, including a sold-out hometown performance, Waxflower have returned with their hard-hitting new track 'Sixteen Floors'. Teaming up again with acclaimed producer Stevie Knight, Sixteen Floors accesses a vulnerability and honesty that demands attention.
Now signed to European heavy-weights Rude Records (Saves The Day, Gideon, Blood Youth, Sleep On It) the band looks to capitalize on their extensive touring schedule, which saw them hit the road with Between You & Me, Stand Atlantic, Sly Withers & more as well as supporting US giants Simple Plan, by starting to push the boundaries globally.
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.
