What’s this? The brand new single from Swedish artist Matilda Melin, aka ORKID. She returns with ‘Wasted’, the music video for which she released this week.
What does ORKID say? “’Wasted’ is about hiding behind the comfort of your excuses. Maybe you dare to say or do things with another you’re attracted to, when you know you really shouldn’t go there. No matter how strong the chemistry, sometimes that’s just not enough… the rush much more fun than the reality.”
What does Scandipop say? A euphoric bit of electroPOP with one hell of a chorus on it. The second half plays even better than the first. As if you are getting more drunk on the song. Wasted, even.
More from ORKID? Her two singles from late last year were superb – ‘Running Back‘ and ‘Only If You Want To‘.
You can find ‘Wasted’ on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
