A highlight from the Australian psych kings recent album ‘Oddments’, the video for ‘Hot Wax’ looks like something MGMT might have crawled out of a few years back. Or, as director Jason Galea puts it: “‘Hot Wax’ is set in a hallucinative purgatory dungeon controlled by an evil overlord through time, space and wax.”
Musically the band have got their hands in all the right pockets – a guitar squall nicked from ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’, bass straight out of ‘Half Full Glass Of Wine’, while singer Stu Mackenzie’s drawl is as low as Lias Saudi channelling Bobby Gillespie.
The band tell Radar they’re currently hard at work on their next record in the Catskill Mountains, due ater this year. They’re also set to tour Europe in November, coinciding with an appearance at Iceland Airwaves.
