“Deborah” by Wax Idols

Wax Idols have shared a new music video for their single, ‘Deborah’ lifted from last year’s LP “American Tragic”. The album has been reissued digitally and will be released on March 10 with limited edition alternate cover on purple cassette via the band’s label Etruscan Gold Records. The reissue includes an exclusive remix of “Deborah” from the band’s own Peter Lightning.

The band have also recently released a lead off single ‘Everybody Gets What They Want’ from their forthcoming album “Happy Endings” which is slated for release later this year. You can check that out below:

Happy Ending is a concept album exploring the posthumous consciousness of a fictional protagonist who can still fully perceive the world around herself. “In a grave, just for you,” Fortune sings with a certain slyness, exploring the abstraction & finality of death from both philosophical and personal perspectives. She also sees this album as a way to process increasing anxieties & fear within the current sociopolitical landscape. This dual theme of political anxiety and personal experience is one Fortune began exploring in seriousness on Wax Idols’ critically-acclaimed third album, American Tragic, which Pitchfork proclaimed “smartly unpacks a pretty universal experience—the sadness, nostalgia, and occasional euphoria involved in letting go of something you once cared about, even when it desperately hurts.”
