To be fair, Brisbane artist Yb. released his alluring new single ‘Waiting’ on Friday, but we’ve waited ’til Monday to give it some love.
We can’t quite put our finger on the reasons we like this one as much as we do, but it’s super cool.
It features a universal message wrapped up in up-to-the-minute production (a little help here from LUCIANBLOMKAMP) and some seriously cool vocals to boot.
“‘Waiting’, in its essence, is about trying to decipher the way someone feels about you when their actions don’t quite match their words,” Yb. explains.
“I really wanted feelings of intrigue and doubt to be the focus when creating this song. It almost felt like it was only way I could have approached it once I had the instrumental ready.
“I made it an initial goal of mine to convey these motifs without losing the fun, catchy, feeling of the song, so it only seemed right to create a tune where these two elements could exist in the same setting.”
Our only complaint? It’s all over in less than two minutes and 40 seconds. Though it could be that’s all part of Yb.’s evil plan to leave us wanting more. We’ll be waiting.
