Cork act Waiting Room deliver a unique sound that comfortably slides and cuts through genres with an infectious catchy laid back air. Intricate guitar playing and soft affecting vocals are perfectly complimented by a tight, meandering rhythm section and sweet teasing cello lines. Waiting Room have just finished recording a follow up to their 2001 debut 'losing patience', which was very much a mellow indie pop record. The last year or so has seen Waiting Room embrace the like of Fugazi and Mogwai to showcase the full scope of their talents.
'Part post-rock, part indie-rock, part pop sensibilities', the new record is much more diverse and adventurous affair, moving from abrasive post-rock instrumentals to soft melodic rock, and with their inclusion on the 'Foggy Notions' Compilation, the next year could prove to be a very interesting time for this young band.
