Song Of The Day: "Wasted.Patient.Thinking." by ROE

Hey guys!

Okay, I need to ask you a question.

Do you ever listen to a song that is about emotions you don't even relate to, but you somehow end up feeling all the pain as if you were experiencing it yourself?

Well, it happens to me.
There have been times in which I've been sobbing because of somebody else's heartbreak and I'll gladly admit it.

Today's Song Of The Day has the same kind of effect on me and I can't wait to hear about your reactions to it.
But be warned - this track might make you feel "all the feels".

"Wasted.Patient.Thinking." by ROE

ROE is the moniker of Roisin Donald, a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Derry, Northern Ireland.

She describes her sound as "Grumpy Electro Pop", we describe it as "genius".

But it's not just house in the sand who is extremely excited about ROE's sound, no.
She has already played the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury 2017, Output and The Great Escape.

Her debut track "Fake Ur Death" was featured on Tom Robinson's weekly mixtape on BBC Radio 6 and has received praise from the Irish Times.

ROE followed up with "Cheek, Boy" earlier this year and took our breath away with her previous single, "Playground Fights". 

Her return with "Wasted.Patient.Thinking." couldn't be more exciting and we can't wait for you to hear it today.

The song is atmospheric and has a familiar chord progression to it, but immediately stands out due to the colourful synths. 
ROE's vocals lead you through the track and easily become the most important element, making you feel her emotions. Slight and harmonizing backing vocals underline the intense parts.

I highly recommend taking enough time to dive deep into the layered instrumention - you'll find nothing but depth and clever arrangements aplenty.

ROE's lyrics are relatable, telling the story of disappointment in love which most of us probably have experienced.
Her writing handles situations with sass and grace at the same time, making sure she gets everything off of her mind while remaining collected.

The way she delivers the emotions is so refreshing and just adds to the list of reasons why she should be on your "ones to watch" list.
