The almighty James Leonard Hewitson returns with another phenomenal slab of angular delight. Waiting For A Call is a gloriously frenetic rush of energy, replete with harsh blasts of percussion, gritty bass and urgent synths which brilliantly mirror the tightly-wound, anxiety-soaked urgency of the lyrics, which articulate the restlessness of sitting about, bored out of your skull, waiting for something to come along and free you from the mundanity of the day-to-day grind.

The production is absolutely astounding, serving the song with an utter cacophony of sound that builds on the eclectic wonder of 2020’s marvellous full-length Only The Noise Will Save Me. All in all, another stand-out transmission from one hell of a talented artist.
