Waiting on My Turn (Official Video)


WATCH: Bathurst-based band Smith & Jones’ latest film clip, for their song ‘Waiting on My Turn’ made use of a host of Central West creatives.

When Abby Smith and Sophie Jones started work on their latest album, recorded with Kris Schubert at The Boatshed in O’Connell, it became about more than creating; it was also about saying farewell to their youth and naiveté, and tuning into the magic and freedom of a new musical age. And magic is abundant in their latest single, Waiting On My Turn, ringing out through the open tuned Gretsch strum, the sparse hammond work, and the vocal performances of these two remarkable voices.
Lyrically, Waiting On My Turn explores ideas around longing, and finally facing the truth of one’s own identity, even if it is seen through a veil of wanting. Musically it is a muted and fragile thing; each instrument plays its part without embellishment, letting the two voices carry the story along with the sensitivity and honesty Smith & Jones have become known for.
Waiting On My Turn marks a new chapter for Smith & Jones, and is the musical representation of two souls who decided to yearn, and wait, and make magic, together.
