Having formed in 2020, the Gold Coast’s HEAVY WAX are fast becoming one of the country’s most discernible roots groups. Their raw sound is underpinned by a tight rhythm section and gritty 3-piece horn section that compliments Quin Samin’s soulful vocals.

Referencing eclectic mixtape compilations, the band draws inspiration from ‘pre-digital era’ genres like soul, funk, and blues-infused rock. The band is striving for sounds that evoke emotion which they feel can only be achieved by way of authentic musicianship on acoustic instruments. Like a kid rummaging through their parents’ crate of old vinyl and discovering a gem for the first time, they are constantly on the search for the new ‘classic sound’.
