Despite the seemingly spooky setting of the video for "Mausoleum", Wax Idols manages to find the bright side in loss. The track, from a May 16 album release, uses catchy, unforgettable lyrics and a touch of psychedelic rock to touch on the ideals of holding tight to the memories and people that have since moved on. The band invites us on their trek down memory line with a poetic opener, singing, "I'm a walking mausoleum/I’ve organized my grief by numbers Would you like to come inside?" Realizing that something or someone you once held tight to has moved on, under any circumstances is difficult, but the cutting guitar, rapidly paced percussion and moments of swirling instrumentals provide the slightest hopeful glimmer that everything is going to be OK.
