Waiting for the sun is a two-members band formed by Carlos Naranjo and Txetxu de la Portilla in full confinement at the second wave of Sars-cov-2. Although it was born as a result of the pandemic situation, both musicians have worked since very young and maintained a deep relationship from which they always kept the 'promise' of working on a shared project, which ironically took place thanks to an unfavorable scenary as it has assumed the COVID-19 situation. In fact, none of them have been physically in the same room since Txetxu resides in Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) and Carlos in Calafell (Catalonia), so the whole music has been developed in separate recording sessions making it work thanks to a transcendental understanding/spiritual/artistic connection.
Waiting for the sun is therefore a symbol of 'the unbreakable harmony' through time, space and adversity, with a music style deep into the emotional whose core (as the song of the same title sings) could be:
Waiting for the sun
My family and friends they're all away
Despite this night is being so long
I would wait for you to come back to me someday
