Needle Drop: Connah Evans, “Wait For Me”

Connah Evans is a young singer-songwriter from North Wales. Yes, he sings introspective songs while strumming an acoustic guitar, but he supplements these basics with so much more, to a point where you end up with something more akin to Imagine Dragons or Circa Waves.

His latest single, “Wait For Me” with its lively guitars and drums that seem to almost skip, is a real earworm. After an initial listen, I was off to my lunch-break where I found myself humming the chorus without even noticing what I was doing—which I suppose for a good pop song is exactly what you want.

After releasing his debut Labels last year, Connah has clearly been busy, as the accompanying “Wait For Me” tour video shows him playing to numerous packed venues in a jaunt around the UK. This is all the more impressive as apparently Connah books most of his own gigs.

“Wait For Me” is clearly a development beyond Labels as Connah continues to refine his abilities as a musician, and while it is a good pop song I would hope that he continues to grow into a distinctive sound that sets him apart from the current contemporary music we hear on the radio. He seems well on his way to doing so.

“Wait For Me” is out February 26, 2016 via Heart Leap Records.
