​Something old, something new: A welcome comeback for The Waiting Kind | Posted November 07, 2016
"Come be the fire in my soul / Come be the life in my broken bones." The stark prayer wastes no time in announcing the return of Boise, Idaho-based band The Waiting Kind after a five year absence from the Christian music scene. Though it's been awhile since we heard from the band (2011's The Waiting Kind EP), they pick up where they left off while simultaneously maturing their sound with the new single, "Heartbeat." 

From the first note, "Heartbeat" lets us know that it's a new day for TWK, as a stylistically divergent hooky synth line finds perfect space throughout the song and knits it together at every turn. However, the driving drums and bass along with well placed guitars let us know that it's still The Waiting Kind we've known since their 2009 debut release In The Land of Hope

Vocalist Derek Henbest effortlessly pulses with the understated feel of the verses before soaring into each chorus, and the bridge breathes prayerfully into lines inspired by Psalm 23. Overall, it's a great synth-rock track with just enough balance of electronic elements and guitars to keep it from leaning too far one way or the other. 

"Heartbeat" marks a hopeful new start for the band, and a video for the song has dropped along with its release on Nov. 1. The Waiting Kind has plans for the single to lead an EP in 2017, with more songs already in the pipeline. For now, "Heartbeat" is a perfect placeholder for more music from TWK!
