Behind the Song: 'Waiting Kind of Girl' by Leaving Thomas
Thursday February 16, 2017
Following an introduction from labelmate Jess Moskaluke, the hot new duo performed their debut single "Waiting Kind of Girl" and an infectiously upbeat mashup cover of "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line and "Dibs" by Kelsea Ballerini.
Inspired by her own experience, Annika Odegard had approached Bryton Udy with the idea behind "Waiting Kind of Girl", and the two opted to write a positive song to empower others:
"We hope the song serves a reminder to people of their self-worth and that they don't need to wait around for someone else to make them happy.
We love this song because it's a blast to play live, it's upbeat, and we believe in the meaning behind the song."
