Background[edit]

Although it was never released as a single, the song was featured in a Victoria's Secret commercial in December 2013,[1] and in January 2014, it charted at number 99 on the UK Singles Chart.[2] The track also reached number 16 on the US Alternative Digital Songs chart in April 2015.[3] The song describes a long-distance relationship.[4]

In July 2014, English girl group Neon Jungle released a cover version of the song on their album Welcome to the Jungle without Banks' knowledge. In response, Banks posted a statement on her Facebook page, explaining she was 'shocked' to see the song on their album, describing the song as 'my own heartbeats' and having been 'born from my real life, my real heartache, my real fingertips when I was at one of the most confusing times in my life'.[5] The song would later appear on her debut studio album, Goddess, released in September 2014.[6]

Release and promotion[edit]

Banks performed 'Waiting Game' on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 7, 2014, along with single 'Beggin for Thread', making her television debut.[7] It would later be featured in the television shows Reckless (season 1, episode 7), Grey's Anatomy (season 11, episode 3), Mistresses (season 3, episode 1), Power (season 1, episode 7), and The Originals (season 1, episode 4), as well as on the deluxe edition of the soundtrack to the 2014 film Divergent.[8]

Critical reception[edit]

The Guardian described the song as 'essentially, a [young-adult] novel distilled in song [which] throbs with yearning and lust over evocative drums and static'.[9]
