Non La Goes Sparkly in "Wait 4 You" Video
The clip comes from the Vancouver songwriter's 'Not in Love' LP
Published Feb 24, 2020Vancouver's Non La recently released his debut album, Not in Love, via Kingfisher Bluez, and now the self-described "queerpop" songwriter (who also plays in Thee AHs, TV Ugly and more) is premiering a video for the record's "Wait 4 You."
The song is a romantic indie pop jam, with a vocals-and-guitar intro that suddenly bursts into a peppy full-band arrangement, eventually climaxing with a Weezer-channeling guitar solo. In a statement to Exclaim!, songwriter DJ On explained, "This song was originally a ballad that I wrote for a lover. After he dumped me I decided to turn it into a rock song."
The accompanying video mirrors the structure of the song, with a black-and-white beginning that explodes into glittery full colour as On performs the tune with his band in front of a sparkly backdrop. It was directed by Emma Arkell.
