Diane Dous: Wait (single)
Diane Dous: "Wait (single)"

Song List: Wait

Diane Dous vocalist, Diane, shares some vocal qualities with Garbage lead singer Shirley Manson—a sultry, full voice with a bit of a pop lilt. The tone of Diane's voice lends itself well to the band's psychedelic pop rock sound. Diane Dous' single, “Wait,” melds the group's spacey lyrics with Diane's voice, creating a mellow, soft, sonic vibe.

The lyrics deal with someone missing the person they love, and how they wish for someway, somehow to come back into their life...or perchance even just to run across the other’s mind. One can actually feel the pain and hurt through her voice. Lyrically, this longing is easily identifiable to anyone who's been in a heartfelt relationship that came to an unwelcomed end.

Guitarist Lemon k. maneuvers deftly in the background, providing a landscape and setting an appropriate mood. "Wait" has a soft feel, connecting lyrically with its listeners, while maintaining a unique, experimental resonance.
