WHITE SANDS WAIT 7 INCH LP VINYL NEW 33RPM 45RPM
1. The Wait
2. Expect Nothing
7" flexidisc single featuring 'The Wait' accompanied by a 24 page fanzine and a download code for the full 3 tracks.
After their initial meeting came during stints of performing at house parties whilst in former bands, it took no time for John (Male Bonding) and Conan (Mazes) to become firm drinking buddies. Tagging along on each other?s tours and running around the USA together, they eventually met Sophy (Novella) through mutual friends, aiming to spend their time together outside of any music scene. Instead of going to gigs, they?d go and get dinner or build a bonfire. It wasn?t until drinks at a friends wedding reception when the penny dropped and the project was formed ? with tracks as strong as ?The Wait? and ?Years?, it conjures relief and disbelief that such a unity took so long.
With the obvious soundings and influence from their respective ?other? projects, White Sands heightens a darker and far more furious edge to any of those previous. Fusing a Pacific Northwestern / very 80's post-punk sound, clear inspiration comes from The Wipers, Wire, Stereolab and The Cure. Lead track ?The Wait? drives like a freight train, packing 182 seconds of lucid frustration ? ?hide everything deep inside / you won?t find anything?.
?The Wait? is set to be released as a 7? flexidisc accompanied by a fanzine put together by the band / 3 track digi-single. Art Is Hard have elected to release music on this format due to frustration with the standard 7? release and a desire to create a package worth owning.
