Hailing from Rotterdam, Dragonfruit has already created a buzz for themselves with singles Gears of the Giant Machine, and Some Say, tracks that received special love from several publications, including Earmark, KALTBLUT, and Somewhere Soul.
Wasted is the band’s third single. It combines modern R&B, that has glimmerings of Hiatus Kaiyote, with a dash of BadBadNotGood-like percussive flair.
The song sounds so good. I like the hard-hitting beats and layered synth electronics. Besides, the hooks are memorable. Furthermore, I’m also a fan of the soulful vocals.
Lyrically, Danique of Dragonfruit shines. She has a unique writing style. Her words are golden.
Wasted tells a story of someone who is feeling betrayed by their love for someone else but eventually bounces back to bring positivity back into their world.
Dragonfruit’s music connects with people. They are iconic.
The song deserves to be heard. It’s a masterpiece.
