bio

Vancouver-based, Wax Theatrics packs a punch with a blend of power and psychedelic pop. They aim to sonically and visually evoke the spirit of drama as a way of investigating the world we live in, and what it means to be human.

Wax Theatrics released its first full-length album in November 2019. The album was recorded at the historical Fader Mountain Sound Studio and produced by Darren Grahn, whose credentials include high-profile artists such as Metallica, Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, and Motley Crew, as well as local artists, including Black Pontiac and Strange Breed. 

The band’s experienced songwriters collaborate to explore themes such as:

 

  • Mental health

  • Love

  • Fiction & Fantasy

  • Addictions

  • Climate change

  • Loss

  • Corruption

 

Openly writing about these topics is an expression of inclusivity and demystification of the challenges that afflict everyone in our society, from the marginalized to the prolific. 

Their style has been compared to Ben Folds, Talk Talk, and Todd Rundgren by Alan Cross
