HALAN's latest release 'A Waste' sounds like a track you'd hear in a movie trailer or in the opening of a TV show where the protagonist is out by themselves in the city, late at night. It creates a strong ambience and atmosphere, complemented by the mournful lyrics and emotional singing. I love the bass beat that persists throughout the song, and HALAN's clear, shimmery vocals provides a satisfying juxtaposition. The lyrics are poetic, especially the outro which repeats the same words four times, with increasing intensity and ending on a climax. This is a song I'd vibe with on a dark day.
