Woodes unveils the cinematic “How Long I’d Wait”
Melburnian indie artist Woodes is back with the cinematic and captivating “How Long I’d Wait”. In our first glimpse of her forthcoming debut album, we see the artist immersing herself in her own daydreams.
Firstly, the track is inspired by the “dreamspace” of the first few episodes from Game of Thrones’ final season. Talking about this inspiration, Woodes explains: “I pictured a vivid oasis, like high garden. A sort of day dream space, over looking the sea.” Also, Woodes has revealed that it was her time away from home that spurred her to write it. “I wrote How Long I’d Wait after a big block of time away from home. My friend Scott (who I wrote Dots with) was playing his guitar, a riff that felt reminiscent of the music I loved when I was a teenager.” Accordingly, it is that daydream nostalgia which gives the track that warmth.
“How Long I’d Wait” shines through the combination of the live string quartet and the electric guitars. This wonderful partnership creates a really dreamy and larger-than-life soundscape. Therefore, the cinematic grandeur of “How Long I’d Wait” gives the track that anthemic feel, possessing a decent amount of twists and turns to keep it engaging. This makes it a beautiful track for when you want to escape.
Woodes’ debut album is scheduled for release in early 2020.
