Please Wait release blissful new single ‘Rush’ ft. alayna

Following on from the lush ‘Flight 99’ featuring singer, rapper and producer Masego, Please Wait return with the blissfully melancholic single ‘Rush’ featuring vocals from singer-songwriter and Spotify favourite alayna. Vast electronic soundscapes are coupled with twinkling piano melodies and a soft, lingering bassline, almost like the steady heartbeat of the song itself. And though the New Zealander sings of the wonderful sensation of love which ultimately leads heartache, it’s hard not to fall for ‘Rush’. The artwork is shot by the artist, and each release for the upcoming EP has an accompanying photo zine that acts as a visual story to compliment the music. ‘Rush (ft. alayna)’ is out now via 823.

Please Wait is the culmination of numerous online exchanges and years of sharing voice memos, stems, musical ideas & TikTok links between Australia’s most in-demand beatmakers, Ta-ku and Canadian artist, matt mcwaters. Their cathartic approach to this body of work has been more about self-expression than anything else and has culminated in an EP that covers a range of issues and experiences from different times in their lives. Ta-ku’s 823 label represents the appreciation for the people/ideas/places that inspire and push us forward.

‘Rush (ft. alayna)’  is taken from the upcoming ‘Black & White’ EP
