A groove laden indie-R&B haze with intertwining guitar and saxophone lines, Slye’s latest single Waiting explores a different area for the artist.
Slye weaves this intimate tale of expectation and patience, of unknowing and anticipation, through memorable and dexterous vocal hooks, loose bass groves, jazzy guitar chords and smooth saxophone lines.
Combining indie riffs with R&B swag, Waiting is a mix of genres blended together to create a sonic palette that is unique and unquestionably Slye.
Drawing on elements from modern R&B such as Allen Stone, Mac Ayers and Tom Misch and reaching back to the 90-00s hinting at D’Angelo and Anthony Hamilton.
Like Slye’s catalogue, Waiting develops as each section unveils a new and fresh element as the story sonically unfolds, piece by piece, until the final dramatic chorus.
