Toronto-based rising star Langston Francis has released his new single “Waste My Time” off his forthcoming sophomore EP Self-Titled, set for release later this year. The infectious lead single was written by Langston with multi-platinum selling songwriter Neil Ormandy (James Arthur “Say You Won’t Let Go,” Bebe Rexha, Liam Payne) and producer and multi-instrumentalist Martin Wave (Chloe Lilac). “Waste My Time” is about “that carefree moment when you’re going out to the party, before you do the thing you’ll regret the next day,” Langston jokingly explains.
The production feels like something taken from the 1960s and of course, fused with modern bass and drums. It really makes me think of Hawaiian shirts and martinis. The vocals are layered mid-range and falsettos for a strong delivery and framed with some distorted vocal sections to add even more depth and energy.
