Waxflower – Soak

Today’s track of the day comes from Waxflower with their new single Soak!

Waxflower have released the awesome single Soak!

Frontman Tristan Higginson said: “Soak was our most ambitious shoot yet in both premise and scale. Though I was both pushed out into a lake on a mattress, as well as tied up and manhandled, the full band shots were the hardest. The heat of the room coupled with the high energy required had my heart rate through the roof — a great way to get me into character as the health panicked hypochondriac I was when the song was penned. The video provides an abstract look into these struggles through bizarre instances of internal conflict.” 

Guitarist Nick Hargens said: “The music video for Soak was partly undiscovered ground for us. We really wanted to make something that wasn’t so predominately band performance focused, something that was able to share some of the story about the song and the lyrical content. I was really excited to have Giles Higginson come onboard and assist direct with me, he brought some really cool ideas to the table as well as working with my rough plans already to help shape something that is really special.” 

Giles Higginson said: “For the Soak visuals we wanted to try and capture the heavy & chaotic themes of the song. We tried to explore different representations of feeling trapped and how Tristan was able to ease some of that pressure.”
