Reliably informed

Following their recent rebranding as the world’s first DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) fronted alt. rock band, Alex James Band have released a purposeful new single: Waiting For Something.

The song opens with a rhythmic guitar and drumbeat, quickly joined by Alex’s vocals as he describes hopelessly anticipating the arrival of an opportunity (represented by an ‘open door’). Though the lyrics are relatively simplistic, this doesn’t make the listener even marginally lose interest; rather, it’s this very simplicity which makes the song thoroughly melodic and memorable. The undoubted highlight is the forceful and fierce electric guitar solo that forms a nexus between the song’s steady beginning and up-tempo end. Guaranteed to get the listener dancing, this track really is something worth waiting for.
