YES MA'AM

"Yes Ma'am" is simultaneously a delightful nightmare and a headbanging assertion of power ("I'm the motherfucking boss," Wsabi Fox declares). It'll worm its way into your head and refuse to let go.

Will Shenton, ThrdCoast

"Yes Ma'am" is the first single off Wsabi Fox's debut EP, GUSHING, out digitally and on limited edition cassette tape on Floordoor Records July 15th, 2018.


gushing ep 

GUSHING is a strong and powerful EP, with emotion, dissonance and melody in abundance... a testament to progressive rock’s creativity and a salute to the new ways in which music can create affecting soundscapes and auditory hybrids.
