Wait. Think. Fast. – Local Band We Love

Written by

Wait THink Fast

Wait.Think.Fast celebrated the release of their new album Luces Del Sur earlier this week and KCRW Raul Campos tells us why the bilingual indie rockers are a band to watch:

“Being a native Angeleno, I always gravitate towards supporting local bands.  It’s a huge plus when the band is as fantastic as Wait. Think. Fast.  I’ve had the opportunity to follow this band since its inception about just a few years ago.  Jackie Santillan’s vocals bring such a haunting passion to the music that is so captivating and inspiring you can not help to be entranced!

The new album Luces Del Sur is just that — gorgeous melodies, tremendously heartfelt lyrics and vocals make this a beautifully well-rounded package.

“Bad Night”

Instantly, I was drawn to the tune “Bad Night.”  Maybe it’s because I can relate on so many levels to it, or could it be that it’s just a fantastically produced tune. Either way, it’s a song that I have to repeat at least a couple times every time I pop the CD in my player. ”

Editor’s Note: KCRW exclusively premiered another track from the album — “Leymah Contra Los Diablos” – earlier this year as Today’s Top Tune. If you missed the free download, you can stream it below!

The song is a duet by Santillan and recent Latin Grammy nominee Ceci Bastida (ex-member of iconic Mexican punk band Tijuana No and formerly of Julieta Venegas’s band).
