Bachelor Girl - ‘Can’t Wait to Meet You (Colin Snape 2020 Breakout Remix)’
Released: 12 June 2020
Tania Doko has announced the release of a remix of one of former band Bachelor Girl’s old album tracks.
'Can’t Wait to Meet You' featured on the band’s second album 'Dysfunctional' in 2002 but was not released as a single. Now the song has been given a new lease of life by Melbourne based musician and producer Colin Snape. With lyrics featuring the lines "Can't wait to meet you, I'm counting down the days...just killing time, can't wait to meet you”, it could be argued the timing is perfect for a world slowly coming out of post COVID-19 isolation. ~ Emma
Tania also made her music video dancing debut in the lyric video for ‘My Moon Is a Street Light’, by Mattias Lindblom & Martin Hall. She explained more about the collaboration of her socials:
“When Mattias asked me to be involved showcasing my secret guilty pleasure, unrealised career path of DANCE (trippy rave style) who was I to say no. How EPIC and apt this track is, I’m truly honoured to make a contribution….”
