‘Wait For Now’ Single including a rework by Mary Lattimore and a remix of ‘To Believe’ by Anthony Naples from The Cinematic Orchestra have always defied category and convention. Neither an orchestra nor a band, not a pure jazz act but full of its influence, not electronic but originally rooted in a London based electronic scene. Musical trends come and go but TCO - now comprising of founder Jason Swinscoe and long-time collaborator Dominic Smith - have assuredly and defiantly stuck to their principles for over 20 years (their debut album, “Motion”, was released in September 1999). A refusal to compromise, to bend to classification, to follow convention.
The single ‘Wait For Now’, taken from their acclaimed latest album “To Believe”, featuring the vocals of soul singer Tawiah (who has worked with Mark Ronson, Wiley and Blood Orange), and recorded between Los Angeles and London. Also included on the release are two new remixes, a rework of “Wait For Now” by Ghostly signed LA Harp innovator and collaborator Mary Lattimore (Thurston Moore/Kurt Vile/Jarvis Cocker), and a remix of the album track “To Believe” featuring Moses Sumney on vocals by New York based producer Anthony Naples, riding high from his acclaimed latest album Fog FM. Rounding off the package is the album version of the lead single, ‘Wait For Now/Leave The World’, which also features the masterful keys work of Dorian Concept (Brainfeeder/Ninja Tune), adding extra texture to the track’s twinkling effervescence, and underscoring the far-flung connections which sit as the album’s foundation.
