Brighton’s WAX MACHINE are a band so steeped in the kernel of psychedelia that there’s every indication they may have slipped through a side door in space-time and sprouted anew a few years back on the UK coast. However, for all intents and purposes it’s best to believe that they truly sprang from the fertile mind of Brazilian-born, Italian/English-raised Lau Ro (Guitar/Vocals).
On ‘Earthsong Of Silence’, their eclecticism incorporates spiritual jazz, Krautrock, tropicália and library music, borrowing from dreams and trances to give life to a psychedelic experience that feels hauntingly familiar, yet strikingly new.
Flutes, wandering guitars, and jazz touches come rising through the mists with a guiding hand from Kikagaku Moyo’s Go Kurasawa behind the boards. With ‘Earthsong’, they add a new dimension to their sound, further exploring both their English psych-folk roots and mining a deeper appreciation for a West Coast sound dipped in sun, peace and serenity.
