Introducing: Wax Idols

When vocalist Hether Fortune declares “I love the sad and the sick of the world,” you have a fair idea which direction Wax Idols go in.

Wax Idols were formed back in 2011 as the project of Hether, who previously, had been doing the rounds on the Oakland Garage/Punk scene (a member of Hunx & His Punx for a short time) Since releasing 7” debut ‘All Too Human’ back in 2011, Heather as turned the Wax Idols from a solo-project into a fully-fledged band, accumulating in the release of the ‘Discipline & Desire’ LP earlier this year (tracks below), which stay in keeping with their post-punk mantra, but this record has much darker-gothic ‘Siouxsie Sioux’ style undertones that make for an intense but pleasurable listen!
