Share the video for ‘She’
The Charlatans and Johnny Marr support show
Wax-Tree-Cast have shared the video for their latest single ‘She’. It follows the release of the track at the end of last month and as the band have announced they will be supporting The Charlatans and Johnny Marr at The Piece Hall in Halifax this summer.
Wax-Tree-Cast are a three-piece Indie-pop band from Halifax, West Yorkshire, formed in mid-2020, and consisting of lead vocalist and bassist Oolagh Hodgson, James Newsome on drums, and songwriter Blair Murray on lead guitar.
Championed by Chris Hawkins on BBC 6 Music — who told how he “really fell for” the band after seeing them play live, Wax-Tree-Cast have also seen fierce support from John Kennedy’s X-Posure show on Radio X. Kennedy has supported all five releases, and recently invited the band into the studio for an intimate interview and live set.
She: Blair wrote She to provoke thought around disabilities and children taking care of other children. The song recounts a sad tale of abuse as a disabled younger sister is looked after (badly) by her sibling. The young girl decides to take matters into her own hands, and tragedy unfolds.
Having garnered a phenomenal reputation for their live shows, from bowling over Kendal Calling to supporting Tim Burgess, the trio are set to perform a string of dates this spring, including nationwide tour support with Steve Mason and with The Hold Steady in London.
