Soleima - Wasted

Copenhagen-based artist Sarah Mariegaard, aka Soleima (pronounced so-lye-mah and a former member of Danish hip hop group Flødeklinikken) has today unveiled her new single entitled "Wasted". A luxurious synth arrangement accompanies Soleima's distinctive, glittering vocal tone to create a song that hits you right from the start, with its joyous, summery production courtesy of Vera (Liss, MØ etc) and Luke.

Speaking on the track, Soleima explains:

"The song is about allowing yourself to run away from a crazy and awful world. Using a disguise and forgetting everything for a moment. But also it is a song about having blinders on. Not recognizing, or choosing to forget - that we are living in a fucked-up world.

To me the term 'wasted' gets double sided in this song. The obvious meaning is of cause being drunk/high and therefore unable to process thoughts and logic. The other way to look at it, is that some people, like myself, are able to lead a certain kind of life whereas many don’t have the same possibilities as me - and sometimes that chance can be wasted."

Listen to "Wasted" below.

Premiere via The Line of Best Fit.
