DZ Deathrays and WAAX have teamed up to deliver two absolutely belting covers, with DZ Deathrays reworking FU and WAAX bringing their signature style to a rendition of Fired Up.
“One thing that is so rewarding about doing cover versions is learning how other song writers craft their music. WAAX are one of our favorite bands so it’s been an honour to discover how FU was put together all while giving it our own little spin! To me this song is pure passion and angst and it was an absolute dream to work on.” – DZ Deathrays
“To any guitar band in Australia, working with DZ is not something to be taken lightly. They’re truly iconic Brissie legends and we’ve grown up with and admire their forthright guitar riffs and chaotic drums. We kept on asking ourselves, “how would we have written Fired Up?” We tried to keep those iconic DZ moments – huge guitar solo, driving drums, octave guitars FX – but make them ours.” – WAAX
