It’s going to be a night of seriously infectious grooves at Vinnies on Thursday June 24 when local three-piece Super Massive launch their dance-inducing disco track ‘I Like It’ and I Like It 2021 Tour with rising stars, seven-piece soul-funk outfit Heavy Wax as their special guests.
With venue capacity reduced for physical distancing, tickets are limited!
Super Massive is the creative co-writing partnership of singer/songwriter Malina Hamilton-Smith and ex-Machine Gun Fellatio drummer/composer/producer Glenn Abbott. The pair formed Super Massive when they discovered a shared love of vintage 70’s funk and disco, and a common vision of creating a true 50/50 blend of electronic dance and rock. Guitarist Tyr Kovacic (aka The Disco Jesus) joined the band in 2018.
Super Massive’s show is an intoxicating blend of theatrics and pure hedonistic catharsis, featuring catchy, dance-inducing tunes, glam costumes and a good dose of fun led by dynamic frontwoman Malina. Their song set is a rollercoaster ride from catchy synthpop into euphoric disco, into darker, more atmospheric, alternative songs.
Latest single ‘I Like It’ has a hilarious videoclip that is a must-watch. The single has been released together with a limited edition run of glittery underpants.
Recently-formed Gold Coast seven-piece roots group Heavy Wax come hot off the pan ready to serve up their high-energy, rock-soul-funk-reggae mash. Although in their infancy, they already have a discernible raw sound emerging. Featuring a brazen three-piece horn section they reference eclectic mixtape compilations and sounds of the ‘pre-digital’ era to inspire their creativity.
Heavy Wax have released four singles in a short space of time, with most recent track Clementine getting a run on Double J. They recently played closing set on the Victoria Park Stage at Blues On Broadbeach. For those in search of hi-fidelity music with feeling, solid beats and that extra punch only a horn section can deliver, these guys could just be your new favourite band.
