Hull alternative indie powerhouse Waste Of Paint have now released their majestic, introspective and emotive new tune, ‘Beaudelaire Waltz’ into the world, via The New Anonymous Records.
“We are not our thoughts, we are the grand observers of our thoughts. Our songs are narratives based on what we are feeling at the time. Sometimes it’s near suicidal despair, other times it’s anger at what is happening to the world. But every song, every line means something…. more often than not it has multiple meanings depending on which way you interpret the lyrics….. but that’s what we like.” Explain Waste Of Paint.
Indeed the band is named after a lyric from one of the masters of this craft Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes). The band, from its inception has always been an arts project. We just paint with sounds. Formed in Hull, Waste of Paint is an ever evolving door of creatives based around the songwriting duo of Adam Brodie and Dan Spooner. Typically Brodie is the wordsmith, and Spooner the producer, although they co-write and produce everything together.
“I had to let go and ‘break down’ in front of the camera…I had to bare my soul, I had to cry. And I did…a lot. It was the only way i could do justice to the words that had poured out of me when writing the song. I had to tell my truth.” – Adam Brodie on filming ‘Baudelaire Waltz’.
