What people are saying about “The Wait”:

“Sounds Fantastic!!”
– Sean McBride (Martial Canterel)

“A very fine and deep album. Upon first listen one of my favorite albums from last year by John Maus came to mind.”
– The Suicide of Western Culture

“The Wait” from American artist L’Avenir, minimal synth pairs perfectly solemn , reverb-drenched vocals with largely electronic analog sounds. Often heavy synth bass lines combine with soaring string sounds and driving drum -machine rhythms in this cohesive set of songs. While L’Avenir’s love of vintage “wave” music comes through clear as to Influence, the album never reverts to nostalgic for its own sake but rather comes across as a decidedly contemporary spin on the dark electronic sounds by established artists of Decades past . A very strong first offering from the new Barcelona based label Cold Beats Records.”
– Lissette Schoenly (Spatial Relation)

“Cascades of melancholy and nostalgica.  More than just Minimal Wave.”
– Dj Norbertx
