On ‘been waiting so long,’ Sasha Smith Starts 2021 on an Intimate Note
All the way from northern Spain, the great Sasha Smith starts the year off with an intimate and vulnerable record.
“been waiting so long” shines a light on feelings that often get pushed aside and marked as undesirable. Smith confronts loneliness and isolation with an honesty that commands respect.
In the opening lines, Smith admits that at times he forgets who he is and what he’s working towards. “My hope comes and goes” he writes. Much like that sentiment, the track does the same. Like a release of frustration, he breaks into powerful belting sections, and then relaxes into contemplation. It’s a rollercoaster of emotion, and it’s gripping until the very end.
