Calgary, Alberta-based folk-rock band The Dust Collectors has had a busy 2023 so far. Hot on the heels of the successful release of their debut EP, Filtered Gems, The Dust Collectors are back with a rock-infused single, “Waiting Game.”
The Dust Collectors are proof that sometimes what you’re looking for is right in front of you all along. After years of playing separately in different bands, the four-piece evolved organically, quickly moving from garage jams to songwriting in a matter of weeks. By Winter 2018, they were recording their first Demos EP and playing shows around the local Calgary circuit.
The group approaches songwriting as a collaborative effort. With each member coming from different places of influence, the result is a blend of country, folk, and rock that is both bitter and sweet to the listener’s ears – bringing to mind classic collectives like The Band and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. What truly sets this band apart is that each member contributes vocally; sharing lead-singer responsibilities and seamless four-part harmonies have become the signature of their ever-increasing setlist of original songs.
“Waiting Game” beings with a groovy blues-infused beat and soulful, dynamic vocals that makes it hard to stay seated.
The lyrics on the track are infectious, merging with the hooky instrumentation perfectly. The chorus, “Figure out what your intentions really mean, When you’re ready, I”ll be waiting,” is the high point of the track, with the focus on the crisp, emotive vocals and effervescent guitar hooks.
Overall, The Dust Collectors have produced a catchy, memorable track that blends multiple genres flawlessly.
