Not far from hitting the stage at Spin Off Festival in Adelaide today or Splendour in the Grass tomorrow, Sydney’s Alex the Astronaut snuck out a long awaited new song on triple j Good Nights last night!
“Waste of Time”, her first new track of the calendar year is a stellar indication of just how much this young artist is growing as a songwriter and as a musician; something that’s only getting more and more evident with every show she plays (oft surrounded by the likes of Lindy Morrison on Drums, who has to be a pretty bloody good influence).
Lyrically, it’s a ripper of a song, and luckily we have a snazzy lyric video to sink our teeth into below, so by the time she plays it at Splendour – you may already know the words! And you’ll also find it over on our new Spotify Discovery Playlist.
If you’re like us, we’re hoping this is just the start of a run of new material from the rising star. And given some of what I’ve heard in her recent performances at The Great Escape and Primavera in Barcelona, I dare say we’re all in for quite a treat…
