WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM BIG WHEELS – WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Australian classic rock duo Big Wheels have released their third single of 2023: ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ Golden sunset soaked riffs create a nostalgic environment, feeling as if you could be racing down Sydney Harbour Bridge, this track echoing from the windows of the car.
The track opens with a typically indie guitar riff before Lawson Doyle offers a more retro vocal. The barely noticeable synth in the background adds yet another dimension to this already illustrious song. Big Wheels feel as if they’re breathing new life into an old band, yet their sound feels incredibly modern. It’s clear from the off that this sonically dynamic song was made to be sung to big crowds, and it’s the perfect time to have released it with Big Wheels touring Australia this November and December.
‘What Are You Waiting For?’ brings enticing guitar riffs to the table, making you really sit and want to listen to the incredible depth throughout. Cass Ford’s eerily familiar vocals are seamlessly spun together with Doyle’s, showing the undeniable chemistry between the duo. The crescendo in the bridge allows us to hear Ford’s vocals, and this addition effortlessly wraps the whole track together.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Oasis and Jefferson Airplane, Big Wheels’ combination of blues, rock ‘n’ roll and country music creates a simply timeless sound for the ages.
Lawson and Doyle say they want their listeners to feel a ‘sense of self-empowerment,’ through the track and ‘fuel the fire in their belly because at the end of the day, there’s no better time than now.’ Well then, ‘What Are You Waiting For?’
