Waiting 4 April is an American/South African post hardcore band made up of frontman/guitarist Colton Ray and drummer Jesse Meising. Formed in December 2020, the duo will release their debut EP ‘Photo Memory’ on July 1st, 2022.
With heart and soul, Waiting 4 April make a splash with the animated melodies and eccentric, electrifying post-hardcore infusions that make up the opener Dead Inside and the following Currents. Slowly but surely ramping up the intensity and keeping the passion, front and centre.
Speaking of which, Waiting 4 April up their heavy game with the brash sound of If Only You Knew. The vocals, already so impressive, reach a new level of strength here. Before the explosivity of Answers and the earnest emotion of Loud + Clear shores up the foundations of Waiting 4 Aprils lovable and diverse sound.
This striking EP then wraps up with two more electrifying listens in the form of the title track and Love Is. The former; a catchy and melodically moving tune. The latter; a relaxed and soft track that oozes emotion. A really sweet closer to a memorable debut EP.
