Single Premiere: “Birdsong” by Wax Machine


Winter may not be over quite yet, but Brighton, England’s psychedelic reengages, Wax Machine, are bringing the heat with their new single, “Birdsong.” In the band’s own words, “Birdsong channels the divine energy of the sun. That which inspires flowers to bloom and birds to sing.” Bask in the rays of an early spring and check out this killer sitar-kissed track below:

If you dig the jazzy psych-folk pop, It’s a Beautiful Day-meets-Ultimate Spinach kinda vibe of this track, be sure to pre-order the record before you miss out!
