An intimate transgressive sonic endeavour, which will take you beyond your expectations, "Keep Me Waiting" is a touching triumph of minimalism. If you like the vocal stylings of Bjork and London Grammar or the production stylings of Portishead and Aphex Twin, you'll love this track.
I'm stoked to premiere this delicate music piece, born as a result of the collaboration of electronic producers Jolliffe, female vocalist ECKOES, Modestep’s founding member Tony Terror and GENTRY, who together use the acronym JET-G to grant us outstanding sound.
The atmosphere, which "Keep Me Waiting" carries is dramatic, yet soothing and encapsulates complex and deep emotions. The song is about losing your unborn child and having to carry on with life as normal, or any great loss we get to experience throughout life. It's about picking yourself up after tragedy and remaining hopeful because sometimes that’s all you can do. On the creative process the artists share:
It was spontaneous and organic - it didn’t feel like a process at all. It was just us, in a small room in East London capturing whatever was in the air and playing off each others’ parts. It was honest and wonderful.
The song drops tomorrow via Future London and you're amongst the first ones to hear it!
