Netherlands-based R&B/soul band Dragonfruit are refreshing our taste with their new single “Wasted”. On it, lead singer Danique van der Vlugt’s lush and undulating vocals are laid in tune with the innovative synth-infused instrumentation. “Wasted” carries an amalgam of R&B, soul, hip-hop and electronica and showcases the outfit’s successful experimentation with different modern flavours.
Lyrically, the song narrates the experiences of someone who feels betrayed by their love interest but who, besides all that, still retains a positive view of life. It is a piece that will resonate with many listeners. Have a listen.
