88Rising uploaded this song onto their Youtube on Wednesday from Japanese artist Joji and it's absolutely lovely.
In "I don't wanna waste my time", beautiful melody lines blend with minimalistic production that is in between melancholy and perfect calm. The soothing production deceptively masks the more complicated lyrics, and what listeners get is an experience reminiscent of being on the verge of tears for inexplicable reasons. It will make your heart ache.
Simplistic yet quietly charming, "I don't wanna waste my time" is a song that is lush with emotion and thoughtfully executed. Joji has plans to drop a full-length project and judging by this song and his previous tracks, there's an infinite amount of optimism his listeners will have for anything he creates.
