Indie-pop outfit Arlie are keeping the hits coming with their new single, wait a minute. The track continues the fun sun-drenched nostalgic sounds we've come to love the band for.


Channeling The Beach Boys and The Beatles, Arlie are bringing the sounds of the 60's into 2021, with infatuating harmonies whilst conceptually pondering the human existence with tongue-in-cheek lyricism. The release arrives alongside a vintage inspired visual, featuring the band performing track in a number of settings, with additional footage of the four-piece cruising the streets.


Speaking of the track, frontman Nathaniel Banks shares: “This is one of my favorite songs on the album, if not my absolute favorite. I wrote it while I was still in college, and we've been playing it live since our first shows as Arlie. WAM was a response to a collage of musical sentiments and ideas I was consuming at the time, via existentialist writers like Camus and Dostoyevsky, along with The Beach Boys, The Kinks, and The Zombies… I was thrilled to have a chance to reference Tom Sawyer's funeral prank in a song about existentialism. And the irony of singing ‘If it's paradise that's afterlife, I wonder why we waste our time on the world’ over a 60s psychedelic / baroque-pop musical kaleidescope allows me to have a sense of humor about my own suffering -- this song is a triumph, as long as you don't take the advice of the speaker too literally.”
