Teenage UK three-piece HotWax release their second EP Invite me, kindly via Marathon Artists this week. Mixed by Alan Moulder (Foo Fighters, Wet Leg, Arctic Monkeys), Invite me, kindly encapsulates the three-piece’s ability to harness the firepower of grunge pioneers, matched with great songwriting and musicianship. The band has released three singles “High Tea,” “Phone Machine,” and “Drop” from their newest collection.
“Writing this EP felt really good, it all came together really quickly and the majority of the songs just fell into place.” explains singer Tallulah Sim-Savage. “I felt I had lots of phrases saved up in my head that I couldn’t wait to put into my lyrics. The EP looks at themes of acceptance to people who have hurt you before, letting your doubts leave you and feeling free. Playing these songs live this summer has been so refreshing, I still feel so passionately about a lot of the lyrics, which makes it feel very therapeutic to perform. Working with Alan Moulder on recording the EP was amazing, he was so open to our ideas and really helped our vision come to life.”
Barely out of school, Tallulah Sim-Savage (vocals and guitar), Lola Sam (bass) and Alfie Sayers (drums) completed a stacked summer of festivals and tours having played riotous shows at Mad Cool, All Points East and Reading & Leeds.
The current HotWax single at Alternative Radio is “Rip It Out.” It’s from the band’s debut EP, A Thousand Times, released in May.
In addition to joining Royal Blood on the west coast leg of their North American tour, HotWax have headlining dates in New York at Mercury Lounge and Los Angeles at Zebulon. They are also slated to play SXSW in Austin in 2024.
