Australian-American electro\goth\pop\nu-wave duo WAZU are definitely on my list of top acts to watch and one of my favorite musical discoveries of this year. If you haven’t yet caught up with the band, then now is the time! Check out my brief introduction to the band via a review of their gloomy yet electrifying song “Murder 1,” then comeback and listen to their new single “Happy Endings!”
The new track was produced by the legendary Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, Real Estate, Swans, The Walkmen), and contains the same electroclash and industrial rockability of “Murder 1″ but with a more cynical sing-along chorus that goes “take a look at me / I’m living proof / Happy endings don’t have room for two.” SO GOOD! Can’t wait for the full album!
Take a listen and grab a free copy of “Happy Endings” below!
Catch WAZU on tour at one of the shows listed below, and be on the look out for WAZU’s debut LP, also produced by Kevin McMahon this Summer!
