Wait for the Moment

I found these guys all of six seconds ago and I couldn't resist putting them up on here. Wait for the Moment is an indie, alternative rock group out of Mesa, Arizona (apparently Arizona is just a breeding ground for such groups), and they, for lack of any more appropriate term, ROCK. Melodic guitar riffs over vocals harmonies and self-aware, meaningful lyrics make WFTM something more than your average garage rock band. Here, Nate Smith (guitar and vocals), Aaron Cardon (guitar and vocals), Mark Reyes (bass and vocals), and Derek Sappington (drums) join forces to create an indie-rock sound with as much melody as a Third Eye Blind or Red Jumpsuit Apparatus song, and as much sear as a Jimmy Eat World and Tickle Me Pink guitar solo. There are no favorites here. Every one of the songs I heard was great. Every one of them. I implore you to listen to these guys. The guitar on "Eleven Eleven," the bass and drums on "Take the Lead," and the amazing vocal harmonies on all three, including "Someone Save Me," are just amazing. Wait for the Moment are alternative rock's answer to such overblown groups as Saving Abel and Theory of a Deadman.

Sounds Like: Jimmy Eat World, Third Eye Blind, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Tickle Me Pink

Key Tracks: "Someone Save Me," "Eleven Eleven," "Take the Lead"
