Boardwax and Acetone

John De Laurence and Neil Jeffs


Sunny summer days are all about the fun and Boardwax and Acetone evokes that sense in its building wave intro, the light and airy vocals, the thrum of the drums in the middle.  Recorded at Rockinghorse Studio near Byron Bay in 2017, this version is un-mastered and therefor not yet formally released but this is a hint of what is to come.  The title and first past of the refrain comes from a comment about how surf shops used to smell "like acetone and boardwax" and how they smell now "just like clothes".  John took some half baked lyrics to practice where Neil produced the intro riff and first part of the verse and with the marriage of the two Boardwax and Acetone was born. We are hoping to be able to release the whole song shortly.
