A song for Halloween: Canadian Electronic-Rock band Waxlimbs jump into the cold seas on ‘Dead In The Water’

The ominous electric guitar, the background strewn with mystery as you await more. Your heart skips a few beats as you see the masks of the band as they hide their faces from the wasteland of the world, with misery and disillusionment scattered all over the lands. Toronto based Electronic-Rock band Waxlimbs, tease us and draw us further into the abyss on the excellent ‘Dead In The Water‘.

Her voice is so gritty and real, she holds each tone expertly, and the band thunder in with powerful bass riffs that cut like a sharp knife. This is the vivid story of falling down so deep that you don’t know where you are. You need your real friends to pull you out of this and you hope that they will be there when you need them the most. This is the sign of a true friend- there when you are down and possibly out. They need to grab you by the hand tight and lift you to see the bright light again.

Dead In The Water‘ from Waxlimbs is a dazzling video, full of darkness, mystery and intrigue. This story feels like 2020 almost, with humans feeling like they are drowning right now, and need help to get up and be strong again. You will be inspired to re-think what type of people those closest to you really are deep inside, and if they would drag you up if you really needed it.

The video is incredible on YouTube but do be aware of the flashing lights. Find out more on their Bandcamp and support their journey.

    Thank you so much for this enthusiastic review! So overwhelmed by all the love for Dead in the Water. It’s the angry, belting theme we needed.

    We’re so glad you like it, and hope you’ll enjoy even more the new single we have coming out this Friday, called “Watcher”. We’re most active on Instagram if any of you would like to get to know us a little better!

    Hey this is spot on! Dead In the Water really is friend confirming/reflective video of 2020 – I felt the same thing. You spoke easily of my very reaction. This song is in my head!
