Single: Bodies - I'm Waiting

Bodies I'm Waiting

Bodies - I'm Waiting

Info: Following the release of their debut single 'Nightmoves', Bodies release 'I'm Waiting', a flowing atmospheric track which slowly builds to a towering crescendo before crashing to a surprising finish. The track is complimented by the original and entertaining video from Crooked Gentleman, best known for their work with Hozier, Bastille and Funeral Suits. 'I'm Waiting' formed as part of recording sessions with members of Overhead the Albatross, Squarehead, Kid Karate, BLOOMS and Lethal Dialect.

Bodies have spent time cultivating their sound; drawing influence from the likes of Radiohead, Brand New & Sigur Rós. Originally the solo project of David Anthony McGeown and now expanded to a 4 piece live band, Bodies recently headlined showcase nights for Gigonometry and The Playlist Presents as well as the Main Stage at Whelans Ones to Watch 2017. 

Bodies will play a headline show in Dublin's Sin É on Saturday July 29th to celebrate the release. Support TBC.

Bodies latest single 'I'm Waiting' takes a wry look at our non-acceptance of the self. Visually covered off by the video courtesy of Crooked Gentleman, we see fear, despondency, joy and frustration from a myriad of characters who know what is coming, yet still react with shock and surprise when faced with the outcome of their various endeavours, all of which seem rather mundane to the outsider, but are borne from a great inner-battle within the individual.

Musically 'I'm Waiting' commences with a morose opening harmony, perhaps signalling early on the despairing nature of human behaviour when we become obsessed with things we cannot change. Bouncing bass-lines and light-touch percussion belie the thematic message, with McGeown's hitherto calming vocal rising sharply to a roar in the track's final 20 seconds, allowing some of his alternative indie influences shine through at the very death, excuse the pun! 

Aside from making great music, Bodies' strength comes from a well-thought out ability to clearly delivery his observations on the darker side of human behaviour to the listener, the satirical side to the lyrics is perhaps supposed to lighten the load, but in fact makes it even more unnerving, which is even better.

'I'm Waiting' was released on the 10th of July by Minor Fall Records and is now available to stream on all major platforms.
