Today (May 11th, 2018) sees the release of a brand new single from WE ARE BANDICOOT, titled 'Waiting On'. This is the first of a string of new singles soon to be released on their upcoming EP and will be launched on Spotify, later this year.
The band's musical talents are influenced by an array of artists, such as Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Erykah Badhu, to name a few. 'Waiting on' is a laid back track reminiscent of such bygone eras of the late 70's and 80's. One can certainly hear a hint of Pink Floyd and Radiohead in this single.
Listen to 'Waiting On' below!
"For us, this song fights against what we naturally do. Being quite a progressive band, most of our songs slide through multiple time signatures, rhythm changes and genres (all of this can be seen on our debut album 'Temper', on Spotify), however with this song we were keen to deliver a strong melody that matched the chord progression, but yet kept things simple, allowing us to grow the track still only using three chords."
WE ARE BANDICOOT, are from Kent, UK and are a unique and cultured alternative psych band that have gigged all over the world. Following successful tours in the UK and Europe they ventured to Asia, performing in Thailand and Cambodia - including a headlining residency at the infamous Otres Market. Don’t ask, just go there. Their travels have heavily influenced their musical style and lyrical content, they will take you on a journey during each live set. Packed full of energy, charisma and a sense of urgency We are Bandicoot are venturing to Australia for more international shows in 2018.
