Sydney’s psych-junk outfit WAWAWOW are back with new material and a fully revamped live show.
WAWAWOW have a name to suit the magic – it’s half jam, half Tetris. Carved out of the itches of four frustrated instrumentalists, the group evolved from a like-this-but-weirder attitude to something eccentrically rectangular, with a sound described as “a data-driven Thee Oh Sees for kids that keep their shirt on”.
With a bent, frenzied view of the psych-rock genre, WAWAWOW combine jittery synth with sporadic B-52s style vocals and absurdly indulgent guitars. The four-piece alternate between rhythmic refrain and fuzzy overkill, using pudgy effects to create a “cheeky, trippy, and delightfully screwy” feel, like if Charles Mingus covered The Strokes. With a non stop monolithic performance that continues to electrify Australian audiences, this is one gig not to be missed. Dig it now and dig it fast.
Space Boys, bringin’ the intergalactic jams straight to your living room from the heart of the Green Planet/ space punk ridiculousness
