youproblem – Wasting Time

Sydney singer-songwriter Alana Patmore and producer/drummer Alistair Hayes formed youproblem at the end of 2020. Not wasting time, they spent the majority of 2021 building up their discography and honing their sound. In real DIY spirit, they write, record and produce their music themselves. They only called Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe, G-Flip) for mixing duties.

Wasting Time is the duoโ€™s exciting debut single, and itโ€™s a very confident one. Described by the band as โ€˜happy cute indie alt pop vibesโ€™, the upbeat pop song features dark undertones over a seemingly bubbly palette. On top of all that, Alana and Alistairโ€™s voices melt together wonderfully. The lyrics – about the pull of co-dependency, infatuation, and neglecting your responsibilities for someone else – are cheeky and relatable.

Alan explains: โ€œWhen I fall in love, I get so addicted that it makes all my real world problems fade into the background. I start missing work, and uni, and bailing on my friends, to hang out with this one person.ย  While fun at the time, it always ends up being a bad or wasted investment.โ€
