"Time Will Wait"

Time will wait here for you“, Ruby Wood sings elegantly on Submotion Orchestra’s newest song, and truly the tune feels like it momentarily stops time for nearly four minutes. Swirling synthesizers, a driving bassline and flourishing horns ring out in the background, as usual, adhering themselves like glue to Wood’s vocals. Submotion Orchestra’s music moves as one homogenous life form, heaving breaths in and out as the bass drops and their jazzy touches try their damnedest to hold the song up. Sometimes this reckless abandon doesn’t work, but for the most part the Leeds band have populated their two previous full-lengths with touching, inventive and intricate electro-R&B that’s equal parts XX and Aaliyah.

“Time Will Wait” is their newest song, the first in a couple of years, but the track picks up exactly where they left off, as if there were no step lost in the time between albums two and three. And while that third LP, Alium, isn’t out until November, “Time Will Wait” falls into that category of impeccably warm, yet strangely dark songs, that is perfect to soundtrack a summer dusk. Watch the sun set into the horizon while Submotion Orchestra’s warbling bass and heavenly synth melodies accentuate the bleeding orange of the skyline as the light fades.
