Alex the Astronaut drops new single ahead of SITG

She's not wasting anyone's time with this new track. 

Ahead of a huge weekend playing both Spin Off Festival and Splendour In The Grass, Alex the Astronaut has dropped a new single 'Waste of Time', premiered on triple j Good Nights this evening. 

True to her busy touring schedule, Alex the Astronaut wrote 'Waste of Time' while on tour in London. The track features her signature style of storytelling lyrics melded with an acoustic, jangly melody for a warm and inviting track that you'll keep welcoming into your ears again and again.  

Alex also released a film clip to accompany the track, which you can catch below: 

If you're heading to Spin Off Festival or Splendour this weekend, you're in luck because Alex will be performing a special full-band show in which she'll be joined by Ball Park Music's Jen Boyce on bass, Lindy Morrison from The Go-Betweens on drums and Luke Liang on keys. 

Catch Alex the Astronaut at Spin Off Festival on Friday July 20 and Splendour In The Grass on Saturday July 21.
