The mystery and theatrical drama that surrounds garage rock band Wax Heart Sodality is alive and kicking in every beat of their latest track Funny Games. Drawing you into a visceral and raw sound world, the combination of heavy guitars, relentless driving beat, and a distorted vocal line drifting in from a distance makes Funny Games a wild fever dream of a ride.

While you can hear flashes of musical influence from across the British rock hall of fame – from Muse to The Cure – the world Wax Heart Sodality inhabits is disconcertingly tricky to pin down. Funny Games is a perfect example: infectious and furiously dynamic, but with something dark and unsettling underneath.
