Premiere: Check out the tubular new video for Hot Wax's debut single, Surfing's Not Cool

The Gold Coast four-piece express some thoughts on the music industry through surfing.

With their powers combined, vocalist Nicky Swamp, guitarist Jakey Brown, bassist Matthew Gray and drummer Brad Harrison for Hot Wax, a Gold Coast-based punk-rock outfit who only formed at the end of last year. Fittingly, it was along the hallowed sands of Kirra Beach that they found each other, and so it is wave-riding that forms the backbone of their debut single, Surfing's Not Cool... Or does it? Swamp describes the track as in fact "addressing the copy-cat nature of the music industry and people trying to be something they’re not," and through a blendy of garage/surf/punk-rock sounds, they've achieved it pretty darn well.

We're stoked to drop in on the lads and premiere the single's new video clip, giving you a look at the band in live form, while also fuelling the stoke to go chase some cones yourself.
