Post-punk trio Wax Chattels make guitarless guitar music. Based in Auckland, the group emerged from the K’Road music scene when former jazz school classmates Peter and Amanda reunited after living in Tokyo and Dublin respectively. They recruited powerhouse drummer and long-time friend Tom shortly after, with the goal of making confrontational, punishing music. The group has successfully toured Asia (Japan, China, Taiwan) and around New Zealand, including playing Laneway 2018, building a cult following in alternative scenes. Likened by audiences to Sonic Youth, Joy Division and A Place to Bury Strangers, Wax Chattels are a visceral band that needs to be experienced live.
