Coming out of New Zealand's cold southern city of Dunedin, Wax Mustang became the talk of the town when rumours were swirling about an often-shirtless musician rapping at house parties. In a short span Wax Mustang went from folklore to playing nearly every festival over the 2019/20 New Year period. Between festivals and sold-out headline shows across New Zealand, it's clear Wax Mustang is something the likes of which we've never seen before.
Despite only having a handful of tracks to his name, Mustang has earned himself a loyal fan base that comes out to shows no matter when and where. Often working with Garage Records label mate and indie artist Jack Berry on production, they've used everything from Steely Dan samples to classic guitar riffs. When combined with his wordplay, Wax's tunes never go unnoticed with startling one liners and bars that hark back to classic hip-hop. Blending elements of hip-hop, modern day indie and 80s rock, Wax Mustang has developed his own refreshingly unique sound.
