Most would know Felix Riebl as the frontman of celebrated Melbourne outfit The Cat Empire, but the affable singer songwriter is currently counting down the days ’til the release of his sophomore solo album ‘Paper Doors’.
Following on from the singles ‘Shadows’ and ‘In Your Arms’, Felix is giving punters one more little tease ahead of its September 02 release with the video for new single ‘Wasting Time’, which features guest vocals from Little Birdy frontwoman Katy Steele.
“‘Wasting Time’ started as a regular ballad, then I got stuck, and in frustration banged my left hand on the low octaves, something sparked, then the hook followed,” Felix explains. “It’s the lucky shock. Later, Katy completely distinct voice brought a special edge to the performance.”
We’re quite liking the song. And we’re quite liking its official video (below), which sees both Felix and Katy’s faces in frames; said frames held in front of the faces of people who are present in all manner of different locations.
Speaking of different locations, here are five where you can catch Felix performing from early next month;
September 07 : Adelaide (Producers Bar)
September 08 : Newcastle (Lizotte’s)
September 09 : Sydney (Newtown Social Club)
September 10 : Brisbane (Black Bear Lodge)
