About The Band 

With thumping bass lines, flamboyant guitar riffs and outer space synth sounds, core members Billy Smith and Robb Maynard, who are rooted in soul and jazz, explore the world of the creative arts. The studio is heating up as the duo collaborates with various artists coming from all musical backgrounds, and try and explore new niches within every track.

 

After playing together in live outfits for years and realising the same vision, the pair decided to join forces and work on quality-produced music. With the studio set up and the sunshine beaming through the windows, experimental summer anthems were inevitable. 

 

Moon Wax takes a contrasting approach during production and add their reputable chops and techniques, both drawing influences from everything from old school jazz and RnB to 90’s funk and house. Moon Wax holds producers like Dilla, Quincy, Rubin and Ronson in the highest respect, and try to incorporate the same passion into their music.

"I like to see Moon Wax as more than just a band. I see it more as a creative process, to explore and come up with new sounds and ideas" - Robb Maynard

"It's not Sting though is it" - Billy Smith

Behind Sayonara:

Sayonara was initially a small idea that was knocked up by Billy during lockdown, and after being brought to the table in one of their first sessions back together, Robb instantly saw the potential; This particular beat stood out. The pair then sat and worked out the road map and put the track together. It was originally a small idea that was forgotten about for a while until the duo finally got the chance to link up in the studio and explore each other's ideas. This track was produced through the summer and that feeling most definitely translates through the song. After weeks of working on the track, they decided to bring in some female backing vocals from good friend Liz Robson, to add depth and more lyrical meaning. "The early inspiration for Sayonara came from listening to new John Mayer and Cory Wong records, exploiting simple patterns and making them insanely groovy” - Moon Wax.

Sayonara Lyrics:

Baby

We just need another world 

A place where we can plant our feet

A place for just you and me

I wanna take you there

I've been feeling kinda low 

but I know you're used to that

I think I'm in control

Oh but the devil's ridings on my back 

You feel like the suns getting hotter

You feel like the day's getting longer

You feel like you just don't belong here, oh

I've been feeling kinda freakish

But I know that you vibe with that

Our frequencies are meeting 

Electricity is where we're at 

You feel like your head is underwater 

You feel like the weeks getting longer

You feel like you just don't belong here, oh

Baby, I just wanna lead you somewhere

Take my hand and we can make it there tonight

Flourescence washing over you in this light 

Baby, I just wanna lead you somewhere

Take my hand and we can make it there, cause'

Baby, we just need another world 

A place where we can plant our feet

A place for just you and me

I wanna take you there 

Baby, we just need another world

A place where we can plant our feet

A place for just you and me

I wanna take you there
