Published Jun 29, 2015Chris von Szombathy makes up half of Zoo Age, and the Vancouverite also releases his own music as AAA. "Wax" is a track off his recent album Fruit, and it has now gotten a new music video.
The song is a bright, new wave-leaning instrumental ditty with a danceable mid-tempo beat and brightly minimal synth riffs. The accompanying video adds to the quirky, upbeat tone by show a mixing of simple retro animations and repurposed video footage, which is edited into tight short loops and hazed over with blurry effects.
The video is dedicated to Pat Placzek, a former member of Woodhands who sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago at the age of 34. He had been diagnosed with leukemia, and some friends had been fundraising to pay for an experimental treatment in Seattle.
