Waiting For Words is a collective built around the charismatic and multiskilled Zen. Each album is a new adventure as a boat on a cruise, embarking on board for longer or shorter trips, some talented artists. Waiting For Words may be compared to a modern and daring version of OMD Their music mixes cleverly rock, pop, new wave and electrodark structures, forming special and pleasant sounds. 
The prestigious carrier outside french borders is surprising : interviews with the BBC, unanimous positive reviews, rankings in the alternative charts in Europe and the USA, and touring in the UK, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland ... until a signature on the English label Foundry Records and an going collaboration with  Steve Prestage ( Japan, XTC, Peter Gabriel ) on mixing and production...
 
 
Waiting For Words matter has to impose itself through efficiency combining retro and futurism, ups and mid-tempo, a Pop style very strong and solid epic Electronics, with perfect voice, inspired by the syncopated melodies group like Depeche Mode or Camouflage
The sound is powerful, ubiquitous keyboards, catchy and pests electro sounds, choruses quickly memorized all accompanied by the singing of the charismatic ZeN.
On stage, Waiting For Words created a universe giving color and atmosphere to each title sometimes with video projections, sometimes images syntheses bringing a real atmosphere to the music.
In line with what our Anglo Saxon friends call "Performers" This group can achieve cross over with the "general public" by offering a real show that breaks the rigidity resulting too often in this style.
