As Alex TheAstronaut gears up for her Splendour In The Grass performance on Saturday (3PM!! GW McLennan Tent!!!), the young gun songwriter has dropped and brand new ripper track Waste of Time. The song came together quickly while Alex was in the UK playing the renown Great Escape Festival, and saw the young songwriter relinquishing some control over her creative process to producer Jonathan Quarmby. Speaking on the collaborative process Alex says, “I’ve always been a very particular person, maybe a bit of a control freak, and that meant that I wrote songs about love in a very controlled way. I think ‘Waste of Time’ is about me letting go of that.”
Have a listen to Waste of Time and make sure to ear out for those awesome Casio tones!
