Vandoliers have become one of the premier country punk bands these days. They've become a go to band for the outlaw country sound, which is why their latest single is so surprising. "Waiting on a Train" is a straight up country song. If anything, it's a country power ballad. It's not quite mainstream country, and it's not quite a throwback to old timey country. "Waiting on a Train" lives in this in between territory, kinda mainstream but not really. Outlaw country has always been too country for rock and too rock for country, but Vandoliers are now playing with a sound that's too mainstream to be alt-country but not mainstream enough to be mainstream.
