Biography

There are possibly more than one artist by the name of Wazu.

1. WAZU is Matt and Rizz – An Australian/American Dark wave/Industrial pop duo based in New York, New York. (Recently, their name has changed to Vows).


MEET WAZU:

WAZU is Matt and Rizz – an Australian/American industrial-pop/darkwave duo based in New York City by way of Sydney.

Matt and Rizz met as freshmen at The University of New England in Armidale, New South Wales, Australia. At the end of the year party for their class, the two spontaneously decided to form a metal band, Open the Gates; Matt would play drums and Rizz would sing lead. Matt soon came to realize Rizz was the missing ingredient for his band, Captains, and after joining that band as well, they became each other’s secret weapons. The pair became a fixture in the Australian scene, alongside a number of influential Sydney experimental/performance art acts, including porno-gypsy folkers “Rica Tetas” and sci-fi metal band “Darth Vegas.”

After playing as Captains for two years, two records, some side projects and a North American tour, Matt and Rizz decided to officially become a duo and further explore the chemistry that so naturally occured between them. In their first week as WAZU, they performed seven shows in six nights, upon request, at the Top 10 “Best of the Fest” Festival at Toronto Indie Week 2010. Shortly after, they performed as part of the CMJ Festival at Lower East Side staple The Living Room, the Neon Reverb Music Festival in Las Vegas, and the Dropout Party at Don Hill’s in New York City. They have been performing regularly in America since, including a 21 date summer eastern tour in August 2012.
