If you haven’t seen it already, Happy has released our whopping Top 50 Songs of 2014 list. We’ve also had lists from some our amazing friends like Little May, Jack Colwell and Owen Rabbit, just to name a few.

There has been so much great music released over the year, and as we stare down the barrel of what’s left of 2014 we’ve asked  Wax Witches to help us reminisce about days gone by and what they rate as the best tuneskies to come out of the year!

Wax Witches

The ever entertaining Wax Witches has taken up the Happy challenge and has set out to find the best songs of the year. Check out his list here!

In case you aren’t familiar with the name, Wax Witches is the musical endeavour of Alex Wall. This year he released his sophomore album Centre Of Your Universe on Burger Records. For you firends in the USA you may have seen him supporting Drenge , or for those closer to home you may have caught him playing with Northeast Party House. Wax Witches will be doing his own run of shows next year, so be sure to check them out below! Check out the European dates here, and for deets on his Burgerama 4 appearance check this out. As for now, behold his top 10 of 2014!

Every Tomorrow – Pure X 

Their album “Angel” is so good. Every track on it. But this is my favourite. It’s so relaxing and nice to listen to – I love how repetitive it is, like a lullaby.

Pay Attention – Colleen Green

This is the first Colleen track I’ve heard with live drums and stuff. Jake from Jeff The Brotherhood plays as part of her backing band. It’s such a rad pop song. I’m in love with her … and her voice.

River – together PANGEA

These guys are one of my favourite bands in the world at the moment. This is such a good song. I’ve been lucky enough to play with them a couple of times and kinda become friends with them, and they are such good dudes. They shred live too.

It Came From The Heart – Step-Panther

I’ve listened to this song a million times. And I think it’s weird listening to your friend’s bands a lot, but this song is just so perfect. I love it.

Dads Not Home – The Memories

These guys just rule. Ricky is one of the fun-nest, funniest guys in the world. They just write just nice little pop tunes.

Hey Grandma – No Parents

These are my homies from LA, they rule live. And they rule at being nice guyz.

This Could Build Us A Home – The Garden

We played a show with these guys in LA and it was amazing. They are like circus freaks. They put on the most entertaining show you’ve ever seen.

CoCo – OT Genasis

Whip it through the glass.

Penetrating Eye – Thee Oh Sees

I just love that spooky pitch-shifting sound that goes through the verses. It’s so massive and rad.

Blank Space – Taylor Swift

I love pop music, and this is the best pop song of the year. I wish she would write my name on that blank space.

Before heading back OS, Wax Witches are doing a FREE Sydney show at The Lansdowne on Fri 16th Jan!
