Wayst is Susie Burke (The Beverleys), Leigh McDonald (Smoke Eaters), and Caitlin Gallupe (Collagen, Slam Dunk). Their songs are high energy moroseness, melody married to sludgy fuzzed-out grime. Since releasing track “Beach Day” as a demo last year, Holy Smokes wrote that their crunchy lo-fi was “as satisfying as the first step into a patch of grass on a frosty spring morning”, and that they “successfully showcase the versatility of distortion”. In their handful of shows, they’ve played with Jons, Fountain, Sister Blanche, Media Jeweler, Bugg, Zad Kokar, Puzzlehead, Crosss, and soon to play with Jo Passed and BB and will soon be releasing their debut EP.
Wayst is from Victoria, BC.
