Looking for a dreamy indie pop number to add to your dusky summer evenings? Jet City Sports Club has got you covered! Freshly released on July 24, their single, “Drug Store (Waste My Time),” is a “shimmering new track” that is purportedly the perfect blend of artists like Middle Kids, Soccer Mommy and The Beths. This is all the more impressive considering that this is the first piece of new music from this rising artists.
For this track, the band recorded in Sydney with Fletcher Matthews on production and engineering, as well as William Bowden on mastering. Development of the track grew out of Matthews’ Glebe studio, a process songwriter Lilla Obradovic says was a nice, organic one.
The artists had this to say about “Drug Store (Waste My Time)”:
“It’s at its core, is a love song. Told from the perspective of someone who yearns for another from afar, the song feels like it takes place in a dream. There’s a playful nostalgia and naivety to the song that makes it easy to sink into, jam-packed with charisma largely thanks to Obradovic’s vocals.
“When I started writing this song, It was about always wanting more from a significant other, but it evolved into a sort of longing and desperation to be seen by someone you don’t even really know. Someone who might not even know you exist yet.
You know that feeling when you have a big crush on someone from a distance and you hope that they can feel your eyes on them across the room, but it’s all just juvenile because you don’t even know if you’d like them if you really got too close? I suppose the song is about that feeling. A dream of something that isn’t and might never be.”
