We were in Austin for SXSW when ORKID released her buzzworthy debut single Wasted. We immediately included it on our Soundcloud playlist when we returned to California. The commotion she riled up with the release has only grown stronger since, and now that the 21 year old Swedish chanteuse has dropped her second single So Rude, she’s right on track for a speedy ascent in the pop world. So Rude is feisty yet sweet, a kinetic electro-pop track on which she shares: “So Rude was written with no particular person in mind. At the time I was waiting tables at this restaurant, so Lucas and me wrote this song about all the rude guests you encounter on a regular basis. I like the idea that when you hear the song you’ll probably think it’s about a relationship, but when you know the true story behind it it’s actually kind of funny.”  The inspiration behind ORKID’s new single may be light-hearted, but she holds no punches when it comes to So Rude’s crafty lyrics and propulsive pop. So Rude can be found on iTunes, here. Re-visit debut single Wasted below.

We’ve loved an endless stream of Peking Duk songs over the years, but they’ve really hit a homerun with their new single, Wasted. The Australian electronic duo bring a whole lot of flashy pizzazz and groovalicious bass with them on the retro-vibing jam. Huge dance pop hooks are intermixed with snazzy electro house and deep pumping disco house on the chic strutting, glamorous twirling extravaganza. Even the video that comes with Wasted is filled with the nostalgia cheesy 70s disco moves and spiffy vintage suits. You might want to string this Peking Duk up with some Chromeo and Daft Punk on your new dance playlist. Streaming/purchasing options are available, here.

It’s a bi-coastal affair as Los Angeles producer JayKode recruits East Coast singer songwriter Marco Foster for an impassioned vocal performance on his tense and dramatic new single, Wasted. Gritty whomping trap meets melodious electro and rumbling bass on this jolting, heart affecting dazzler, a film soundtrack ready fiery crescendo of sonic resplendence. Wasted is a free download, here. Support on iTunes, here.

New York City’s 8 Graves lays my own heart to waste with with their powerful new single, Wasted, which I must confess is my new favorite despite my love of their prior tunes, like Two Wrongs or their guest appearance on Modern Machine’s Breathe. Wasted is 8 Graves most emotionally sweeping masterpiece to date, fusing vibrant shimmering future bass with heartbreaking alt soul. The love lorn aria captures the overwhelming torment of epic, timeless love, and it harbors a scorching guitar solo, too. This molten burning ballad isn’t a song you can listen to just once once it’s taken a hold of you. You’ll want to subject yourselves to its intense grandeur over and over again. Wasted can also be streamed on Spotify.

Denmark’s Soleima unleashed a music video for her phenomenal new single Wasted today to go along with its official singles release. The sun-drenched video is a fine accompaniment to Sarah Mariegaard’s entrancing electronic pop and R&B. The sassy sumptuous, summery contagious tune fuses the kittenish sweet vibes of AlunaGeorge with the edgy Scandipop of acts like MØ and Elliphant. Wasted is available from various outlets, here.

I feel like I’ve been posting an inordinate amount of debuts and new acts out of Australia, but how can I help it, when newcomers from Down Under keep churning out amazing music like this? Commandeur is the solo project of Sydney based drummer, songwriter, and producer Tim Commandeur, who’s spent a long time in the Australian music scene involved with other bands. He announces his solo project by releasing a gorgeous electronic debut named Wasted. Immensely lush and entrancing Wasted is like a blend of RÜFÜS’ driving synthpop and Hayden James’ more atmospheric dance tracks. It’s breathtakingly beautiful, and leaves me eager to go astray in more music form Commandeur.

I’m really looking forward to March 27th, because I get to catch both Marian Hill and Jack Garratt live at Popscene in San Francisco. From what I’ve heard, I’m not the only one majorly excited about Marian Hill’s set. The Philadelphia based dark electropop duo has bewitched many an ear with their haunting music. New single Wasted will most certainly lure in even more, as its a wonky, intense, and fiery experience. Wasted blends bold, glitchy hip hop beats with darkly moody electronic production, and tops it off with plenty of sultry but choppy pop. Wasted is taken from Marian Hill’s Sway EP, out February 17 via Photo Finish Records / Republic Records.

OFFICIAL VID: Metz – Wasted

March 7, 2013

Toronto band Metz’s Wasted is a lesson in excellent noisy, distorted, post-hardcore rock. On top of that, they released this bizarre, off kilter, distorted clip for the track off their self titled album. Think 80’s prom pictures but with a sinister, dark, offsetting twist. It’s some heavy stuff, both video and song.
