Pulong

Inspiration comes in many forms.

It might be a painting…

It might be a melody…

It might be a moment, while you’re driving beside the ocean…at night, with a couple of clouds up there…so you decide to stop…look at the scenery, let it sink in…and just be amazed with this moment…

Well, today, we can feel the night breeze all over the place once we pressed play on “Wait For Me”.

“Wait For Me” is the debut single from the band ‘Late Night Drives’ featuring Danie Huttlestone, from ‘Les Miserables’, ‘Into The Woods’ and other acclaimed movies.

“Wait For Me” was recorded by ex-Abbey Roads Studio Engineer ‘Mitchel Ayling’.

The song feels like being completely made from love and passion.

…it screams quality…

By saying quality I don’t just mean quality of sound…no, I mean ‘love for music’ quality.

The guys from ‘Late Night Drives’ really put their hearts into this and it shows clearly…like the night sky we just witnessed in the beginning of this article.

Let’s get to know the good people from ‘Late Night Drives’ a little more…

Ben Curry on rhythm guitar

Ben Robertson on bass

Chris Ludlow on lead guitar

Joe Hayes on drums

Daniel Huttlestone on vocals

They hail from East London, UK and they are an indie-rock band with an explosive start.

They gathered up in August 2021…met weekly…and there you go. Brilliant.

The success of this song was also made into a reality with the hands of brilliant recording and mixing engineers…

It was recorded at Woods Lodge studios in Chelmsford Essex with ex-Abbey Roads Engineer ‘Mitch Ayling’ who is the drummer of the successful indie band ‘The Milk’.

It was mastered in Wales with the producer ‘Sion Roberts’…and let’s not forget the awesome artwork that was created by the freelance artist ‘Pulong’ from Thailand.

Such an international piece of work.

Now that we got to know the people, why don’t we get to know the song a bit more? Let’s click play and breathe in the soothing night breeze…

The song starts out with a drum beat…just a drum beat…I love that.

2 bars in…the vocals and the bass kicks in…

From there, the guitars start playing out…the verse develops bit by bit til it reaches the chorus…

The chorus explodes with big sounding overdriven guitars…a lead guitar creating melodies that gels brilliantly with what’s happening with that explosive section…

 

Once the chorus ends for the second time…something awesome happens…they take it down…really take the song down…with minimal musical interaction…only to control our energy levels…and BAM..hits us with a more explosive chorus…and into a guitar solo…

The song ends in an artistic way…abruptly.

…the drums just disappear…everything disappears…like that was all a dream…

Or was it?

The whole experience that the good people from ‘Late Night Drives’ presents to us is a wonderful experience…the vocals are absolutely awesome, the feeling, the performance…the vocals are not just being sung…no, they are being performed…like a scene in a movie…well, what do you know…Daniel is an actor…and he gives an absolutely amazing performance singing this song.

The drums are completely on point, driving the energy forward…

The bass, locking in, rocking out…

The guitars fill the air and make the solo explode…

We wish all the best in the world…and a bit more to the good people from ‘Late Night Drives’, you deserve it.

Cheers!
