about

Wax Children Los Angeles, California

“Coming in at Number 29 on KSPC’s Radio 200 playlist is Safe Hands from the L.A.-based Wax Children.The experimental garage group’s sound features a vast, psychedelic sonic landscape full of fuzz and reverb, but not without the occasional burst of noise-rock power and soothing melodies. A little surf rock in the guitar and clear 60s influences round out the foursome’s sound.”-Carrie Brothers, CMJ ... more

Track Name: Scower Hour
At break of day
there'll be mass alarm,
the siren calls, and a fear will swarm
Crashing light, smites down from the sky
all sparks of life will feel the fright

As jagged wails pierce through the night,
the sinking soul will soon take flight,
returning those too weak to climb
the vanished walls and hands of time
Track Name: Escapades
What can two eyes say without a word?
"You're wonderful
You're terrible
I like you very much"

But when both start to look the other way
Come escapade
Go stray away
Oh, what's that over there?
Track Name: Mr. Hill
Mr. Hill play that song
Your life, play that song

Well I was there in the corner
Banished from the throne
And I faced the terror all on my own

Mr. Hill play that song
Your life, play that song

And time goes by
Yes, the weather it starts to change
and the sun beats down while it gently rains
Track Name: Close to Home
Just yesterday
no I never set alarm
and withheld the reasons by thin yarn
maybe the filth on the radio
will dazzle them eyes, somewhere close to home

Just yesterday
You noticed not a word
now we're here, and your looking for a turn
maybe the filth on the radio
will dazzle them eyes, somewhere close to home
Track Name: Safe Hands
I'm packin' up my bag's
setting out for nowhere
Where mermaids lay and cleanse away frustration
and maybe there I'll find, a token that's worth saving
a paradise is just a shake away

Goodnight starlight
the floor begins receding
let's fla'la'la'la'la'la'la'la' la ' la'la'la'lala
Whoa yeah, It's dawning, and the earth begins it's feeding
Let's fla'la'la'la'la'la'la la' lalalalala

And through that strange terrain
the stars align over nowhere
no need for names for those who are ashamed,
and maybe in due time what is left I hope they can share
a pair of dice is just a shake away

Goodnight starlight
the floor begins receding
let's fla'la'la'la'la'la'la'la' la ' la'la'la'lala
Whoa yeah, It's dawning, and the earth begins it's feeding
Let's fly
Track Name: Dashin'
And if all these walls can stand up on their own
I'll go,
and when in doubt it's easier to shout
oh no!
But with the way the birds all sound today
I know,
there is a storm, and yes it's on the way
and it grows

My friend believe, the guillotines a tease
all hail,
and time again, it feels like notes to bend
the frail,
but in the end, the hours left to spend
set sail,
there is a storm and yes it's on the way,
and it grows
