“Our name refers to what we consider an antiquated method of communication,” says Eric Miranda, band leader and vocalist for the San Francisco-based foursome, In Letter Form. “Yes, we still write and mail letters.”  The band’s point of view is made clear on its new single “Wait Now,” which will appear on an upcoming In Letter Form album, currently in production.

“We are sentimental about the way we go about writing songs and performing them,” says Miranda. “We want listeners to hear a close approximation of our truth.”  Lyrically, the songs of In Letter Form deal with some of the harder of those truths: loss of control, loss of love, loss of innocence, loss of relationships, family members, and so on.  Personal loss colors the band’s music, not only since inception, but even to the point of this writing, as Miranda’s best friend passed away shortly after working on the band’s upcoming “Wait Now” music video.

“There’s something intrinsically contradictory in the word combination ‘wait now’,” Miranda says. “And this duality was very much present in my friend. The video will be dedicated to him.”

Musically, In Letter Form’s touchstones are clear, as well.  The Cure, Joy Division, Bauhaus, along with New Order, Depeche Mode, and The Jesus and Mary Chain – they can all be heard on “Wait Now.”  But where many artists influenced by this important English musical moment fall short, In Letter Form excels.  Theirs is that rare, reverential sound that not only makes you want to revisit classic artists, but pushes you to want to know more of the story behind the intriguing new band inspired by them.

“Wait Now” by In Letter Form is out now.  Another In Letter Form single and video “Reflecting The Rain” on the way. Members of In Letter Form are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
