We got goose bumps when we heard “Wasting Time “for the first time. The dulcet voice of Billy Lockett goes deep into our hearts.
London based singer and songwriter Billy Lockett finally returns with his emotional and hauntingly beautiful new single ‘Wasting Time’. Lyrically, the track explores those feelings and helpless moments just after a painful relationship split. Written and recorded straight after such an event, Billy captured that heart-wrenching feeling on tape, explaining: “It was recorded totally honestly and totally in the moment – the beauty of recorded music is you can capture those moments sometimes. Once I had recorded it, I felt way better, the song changed my mindset straight away.” He continues: “The Wasting Time video is the concept that we sometimes can easily forget the importance of the things we have whether that’s career, friendships, love etc.
The bees are representative of how they live in particular seasons and die in other particular seasons like relationships changing over time. The nature scenes overall, show how humans’ destructive path also leads to long-term damage, bitterness or in the larger perspective – a dying earth.”
