Changing names is always difficult. Even when you would do anything to dig yourself out from under the shadow of your former life, it always haunts you, tethers remnants of itself to your being. You are never truly free - you can never not be yourself. Same goes for a band. Toronto's Program are going for a clean slate, and although they still have some semblance of former alter ego Volcano Playground coursing through their veins, there is an iciness in their lifeblood that flushes everything with a anachronistic blue hue, hiding in darkness even whilst standing in the full glare of the light. Produced by David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene), 'Waiting' is the first taste of what is to come.
Their "first" release will be with us soon enough. Until then, listen incessantly to 'Waiting' below, and check out their pretty cool Tumblr which is about music as much as it is about Program.
