Brisbane band Waax have shared a reel that shows vocalist Maz DeVita in awe: she has discovered that the group's song Wild & Weak featured on the #1 Netflix hit Ginny & Georgia.

In the clip, DeVita looks around in shock as the track's opening chords play on Ginny & Georgia. She then holds her head, processing what's happening, and points at her TV. "Holyyyyy thanks for taking our tune ‘Wild and Weak’ for a spin Ginny and Georgia!!" the band wrote on Instagram, tagging the Ginny & Georgia Instagram account, as well as Netflix and Writer and Executive Producer of the show, Sarah Lampert.

Lampert replied to Waax's video: "Love that song!!! So fun and perfect for the show our music supervisor knew what she was doing with that one fer suuuuuure," while Ginny & Georgia's showrunner, Writer and Executive Producer Debra J. Fisher added, "Love that song thank you so much".

The rockers went on a mammoth 22-date run across the country from October to December last year in support of their second album, At Least I'm Free.

“We cannot wait to see everyone out on the road, it’s going to be so special," DeVita said. "We didn’t get a chance to tour our last album so this one will make up for lost time! It will be a super exciting immersive world for our community to party in."

The extensive tour followed their sold-out national Dangerous tour in April and May 2022, as well as opening for The Amity Affliction. DeVita also joined Northeast Party House on stage at Splendour In The Grass for a riotous cover of Linkin Park’s One Step Closer.
