This week’s Song of the Week, Wait for the Sun, comes from Sodawars, a side project of West Cambridge native and Harvard Square busker Ben Cox. This is the title track off of his new EP, which will be released February 17. Sodawars originated as a side project that came about when Cox decided to put together some material that didn’t fit with his other projects., and this single in particular was mostly improvised while street performing. Heavily influenced by post-rock studs Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai, this eight minute jam contains a delicate rise, led by gentle piano, climaxing with powerful rhythms and guitars giving the song texture as the lyrics “I want to see the sun (x3)/but I won’t” repeat. Check out the song below and keep an eye out for his profile coming later this week!
