It's Been A Long Time Awaiting
© The Nymphs 2014
Recorded by Henry Wagons, and featuring Henry himself on the final track, the album also includes 2013 single Shake and double A-side Who Will Come (recorded and produced by Steven Schram).
It’s Been a Long Time Awaiting demonstrates the stylistic versatility of The Nymphs, with humble ‘porch’ style tunes, bombastic big band numbers, heartbreaking ballads and sassy swinging ditties. With complex arrangements, the use of vocal techniques to mimic the sounds of brass and string instruments, and stamps, claps and clicks for percussion, this album is entirely a cappella. The exception is final track Deep Storage, which features guitar and Henry Wagons as the unfortunate lover of a gin-soaked murderess.
