Talkboy on “Wasting Time”

“It’s the catch-22 situation we often tend to find ourselves in – that we should enjoy ourselves as much as we can whilst we’re young, but at the same time, there is an over-riding feeing that you are wasting your time and you have the future to consider. It’s a juxtaposition of coming to terms with added responsibilities whilst trying to make the most of the present”.

Talkboy’s Wasting Time is out 19th April via Come Play With Me* / LAB Records and will be available on all digital platforms (7” vinyl available here).
