Our music is an organic, yet modern take on 80s influenced Electronic Pop, New Wave and Post Disco.
Boston based Electro Pop band Let’s Wait came into existence during the
winter of 2012-13 when Alexis Desjardins (Synthesizer), Mike Ward
(Synthesizer/Guitar) and Matt Relstab (Bass) began a musical collaboration
after the demise of their former band. Later joined by vocalist Tashi Pique
and aided by an arsenal of vintage drum machine sounds the group began
composing a collection of songs that would lay the foundation for the EP
“Hiding in Your Fantasy”. The initial vision was to create catchy, unique
electronic compositions that felt organic and performance based. Emphasis
was placed on textural synthesizer arrangements and expressive electronic
drums that were playfully reminiscent of 1980s era Synth-Pop, New Wave and
By the beginning of 2014 the band had fully conceptualized their musical
vision and were playing shows regularly through out the Boston area. These
performances saw the addition of live drummer James Willetts and included
thematic backing visuals and diy light shows. Around this time the group
also started the process of recording their debut EP.
The six song effort was entirely self-produced and engineered in the group’s project studios.
Through out the recording and mixing there was a strong desire to maintain
the natural dynamics and essence of each performance while avoiding the
typical pitfalls that can often make “in the box” electronic music sound sterile.
The end result: “Hiding in Your Fantasy” is a strikingly organic
collection of Pop songs that strives to tell a complex story with its intensely personal
lyrical narrative and sonic diversity.
The first single “Shadows” is a fun, upbeat, electro-pop track that builds up with layered,
lush synths. intense dynamic vocals, and hook lines right up to the chorus that keeps
you coming back for more.
“The single tells a story of how suppressed or neglected aspects of one’s
personality can mysteriously re-emerge in the form of pain, passion or
inspiration.” the band explains.
Hiding In Your Fantasy E.P. was released in mid November 2014 and is
available on several digital platforms along with physical CD’s for purchase at live shows.
Let’s Wait has received rave reviews on Vanyaland.com, one of Boston’s premiere
music blogs are planning new shows for early 2015.
