L’Asset – Wait and See (digital single)
L’Asset wrote the song as a friendly reminder for herself and the listener, to be a little nicer and less strict with yourself. “Sometimes it is difficult to allow smaller steps. I prefer to take big steps and work hard”.
When writing ‘Wait And See’ she also started with a plan for a power song, about going all out: as an anthem for her perseverance. Ironically, composing and arranging didn’t happen all by itself. “I expected too much of myself, set the bar too high and some tears also came into play. I decided to translate that into text and that eventually became the second verse.”
The drum samples are from Jack Baker (Bonobo), the sound is bombastic and flamboyant. The hanging and dragging indicates the weight of what Tessa (L’Asset) puts on her own shoulders. The song bursts open at the end, making it a powerful song. “Because being nicer to yourself, taking a step back, allowing yourself that, is also powerful.”
