It’s difficult not to be incredibly moved by Hattie Oates’ vocal on her new single ‘Waste My Time’.
So delicate are they, so emotive, personal and sincere that they sent shivers down our spine on first listen.
And is it any wonder, when the 17 year old is singing about heartbreak.
“This song is about the emotional journey you take when ending a relationship,” she reveals.
“And then getting to the other side, where you suddenly see all the wasted time you spent stuck in the past with them, instead of just moving on.
“For me, the most important part of a song is truth. There is something so powerful about when an artist can draw on real emotions and share it with others.”
‘Waste My Time’ overflows with ALL of the emotions.
Quite simply put, it’s utterly divine.
