Presented by Brisbane City Council and QMusic – Valley Fiesta 2020

Australia’s most electrifying punk band, WAAX, emerged from Brisbane in 2015, possessing

an intensity and captivating, barely-controlled chaos that had been missing from the local

music scene for years. Early singles, ‘I For An Eye’ and ‘Wisdom Teeth,’ were fresh and

fiercely ambitious, with vocalist Maz De Vita’s unbridled passion and seductively melodic

flow full of hooks. 2017’s Wild & Weak EP saw their popularity grow exponentially off the

back of tracks like ‘Same Same’ and ‘This Everything,’ as did their striking reputation as a live

band. Radio soon stepped up to the plate and carried these honest and hard-nosed new

tunes across the globe. Now we land at the next phase of their career and the immense new

single ‘Labrador.’ It doesn’t take long listening to realise that once again you’re in brand-

new WAAX territory in ‘Labrador’ – undeniably the biggest song of their career. Above all

else, the focus continues to be drawn to De Vita’s concentrated vocals, sounding smoother

and more emotionally raw than ever. “I want to be the voice that I couldn’t hear when I was

young,” says De Vita. With songs like ‘Labrador’ in her arsenal, she’s well on her way to

achieving that goal.
