Waiters – Vacillate Wildly

Waiters – Vacillate Wildly from Song, by Toad on Vimeo.

This is the latest free single from the first Song, by Toad Split 12″, which we recorded in February this year. It is by the fantastic Manchester band Waiters, and is one of my favourite songs we’ve ever recorded in the house (and there are a lot to choose from these days).

I don’t know what it is about these songs, but I love the thrummy, relaxed guitar playing, and I love the way the vocals meander too, never charging into choruses, but with such a nice resolution to their path, when it does arrive.

It’s tough to make a decent video of songs this slow, where basically everyone is stood around doing not all that much for three minutes but umm… well, I’ve thrown in shitloads of really long cross-fades to make it look more compelling and I dearly hope it works.  There’s also a free mp3 download from the Soundcloud player below, should you so desire.
