Track: Jet City Sports Club unveil ethereal new dream pop single ‘Drug Store (Waste My Time) as they head off on tour.

One of the best purveyors of antipodean jangling dream pop, Jet City Sports Club are back with the delightful dreamy ‘Drug Store (Waste My Time)’. Featuring the most wistful and yearning melodies carried on the shoulders of jangling fuzzy guitars, this is an epic pop track that glitters sparkles like the sun off a diamond.

Singer Lilla Obradovic says of the track:

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.

There is a cinematic breadth to this track: a hint of melancholy and a dollop of euphoria in its grand, scaling chorus:

‘Drug Store (Waste My Time) is already one of my contenders for single of the year, and can be downloaded and streamed here.

The band have also teamed up with Heaps Normal to create a special acoustic version of Drug Store (Waste My Time)’, released alongside an accompanying video, which highlights the ethereal beauty of the melody:
