Vérité – Wasteland

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter VÉRITÉ premiered her latest track “Wasteland”. The track serves as her first release since her debut Echo EP in September 2014. “Wasteland” is a bit of a departure from Echo, in that it definitely crosses more into electronic territory than the former’s pop focus. There’s a very high standard that the NYC pop-songstress continues to set, and in this track there’s a sense there’s no shortage in the song department to see that continue this year. Like all the tracks before, there’s plenty of rememberable song lyrics that make the songs keepsakes in your playlist, whilst the highly charged choruses (like in this track & Weekend) give a really anthemic party feeling.

Vérité - Wasteland

Wasteland’ takes the spark we saw in EP stand-out ‘Weekend’ and turns things all the way up again. With Byrne’s lyrical storytelling and heartstring-tugging vocals it feels like we’re riding this rollercoaster of a relationship at high speed in the front carriage without breaks. Once again it’s not only Byrne’s lyrical storytelling that makes her music so magical; production credits lie with long-time collaborator Elliot Jacobson and Peter Thomas lends a helping hand – the guy behind Betty Who’s alternative dance smash ‘All Of You’. With thumping synths and swirling melodies, this is the most upbeat track we’ve heard from this breaking artist and it certainly ticks all the boxes of a near perfect pop song.

Vérité – Wasteland Lyrics:
It’s like I’m living in a wasteland
of words I’m trying to say
but they don’t come out right
Like I could be your friend
if you had anything to offer me tonight

I want a heart unbreakable
so I can feel it all

It’s like I’m living in a wasteland
of words I’m trying to say
but they don’t come out right
Like I could be your friend
if you had anything to offer me tonight
But I am just a fool
Cause I could be in love if I really tried
Holding onto something I can’t see
so you can comfort me tonight

I can feel disaster
falling on me after
the sun comes up
you say goodnight
But I keep crawling over you for now
cause everything I feel is a waste of time
Holding onto something I can’t see
won’t comfort me tonight

I want a heart unbreakable
So I can feel it all.
It’s like I’m living in a wasteland
of words I’m trying to say
but they don’t come out right
Like I could be your friend
if you had anything to offer me tonight
But I am just a fool
Cause I could be in love if I really tried
Holding onto something I can’t see
so you can comfort me tonight

I want a heart unbreakable
I want a heart unbreakable
I want a heart unbreakable
So I can feel it all.

It’s like I’m living in a wasteland
of words I’m trying to say
but they don’t come out right
Like I could be your friend
if you had anything to offer me tonight
But I am just a fool
Cause I could be in love if I really tried
Holding onto something I can’t see
so you can comfort me tonight.
