FEISTY Likes: Wax Jaw – Attitude

Released: 1 March 2024 • Genre: Garage Punk • FFO: Bad Nerves, Wine Lips



U.S. dance-punk band Wax Jaw have captured a seriously groovy yet raucous energy on their urgent new single Attitude.

It takes the frenetic garage punk of bands like Bad Nerves and adds a danceable energy that we’re sure will be absolutely storming at their live shows.

We especially love the thumping drum beat that kicks off the track and the shredding guitar solo that comes from nowhere, while vocalist Shane Morgan (he/they) embellishes the track with a serious punk heft.

Listen to Attitude now on Spotify or below via YouTube:

Attitude is the last track to come from the sessions for last year’s debut EP Between the Teeth, but moves away from its surf rock and early rock-and-roll influences.

Wax Jaw, not to be mixed up with punk band Waxjaw, got together in June 2022 and have racked up thousand of followers on their socials. The fivesome is comprised of Shane plus Sean Vannata and George Fenton on guitar, Greg Blanc on bass and Ian DiBrunno on drums.

Fans in North America can catch the band at one of their headline tour dates in March and April. They’re playing eight shows, including trips to Toronto, Boston and New York. We’re not aware of any current plans to visit the UK, but hopefully in the future?
