Wax Fang is an American rock band from Louisville, Kentucky that combines elements of classic, psychedelic, progressive, and experimental rock music, as well as electronic and folk. The band led by singer and guitarist Scott Carney and Jacob Heustis.
Their latest, 'The Astronaut' is a 40-minute three-part space rock opera, epic experimental-psych rock journey. Our hero in the tale is an astronaut who as a lone space traveler, gets separated from his vessel, swallowed by a black hole and transformed into a celestial super being.
Creating a sonic odyssey most would rely on electronica but Wax Fang accomplish their galactic soundscape mostly with heavy psych-pop guitar riffs, swirling synthesizers, acid jazz saxophones, bass and drums, no easy feat but they gloriously pull it off.
