Wide Skies – ‘Waiting For The Answers’(Out 11 December 2015)

‘Waiting For The Answers’ opens with acoustic guitar and Hannah’s effect voice, described here as “a yearning vocal – an intimate opening that reflects the song’s theme of lonely solitude… But in its search to make sense of being alone, Waiting for the Answers soon becomes urgent. Rearing up and breaking free, it gallops home…”

However it’s a little too goddam pop for it’s own good, given the subject matter, there is as much emotion as missing the late bus after a long day at work, rather than the more weighty emotional and psychological albeit self-analysis, a broken nail, guitar string or riff could have added more of a sense of urgency, at  lease delivered a stronger dynamic, as a result, sadly radioland may well love it. Still disappointing though. 6.6/10
