Download This! Agent Fresco’s “Wait For Me”

Published August 28, 2015

“Wait For Me” is an extremely personal ballad for Agent Fresco’s vocalist Arnór Dan Arnarson. He wrote the song while meditating not only on the death of his father, but also on the amount of time that he’s missed spending with his family due to his career choices. “ I’ve been absent from my loved ones through so many life-changing moments,” Arnór explains in the video’s description. “Time hadn’t stood still […], and realising that was just heartbreaking.”

His heartbreak is palpable, and the song makes that explicitly clear. It’s full of mystery, with an undeniable sense of painful longing. Arnór’s buttery voice just projects emotion, and that combined with the melodic nature of Agent Fresco makes the track just wash over you with a veil of both sadness and beauty. You viscerally feel for Arnór, and by god, you’ll most certainly wait for him.
