“We are not our thoughts, we are the grand observers of our thoughts. Our songs are narratives based on what we are feeling at the time. Sometimes it’s near suicidal despair, other times it’s anger at what is happening to the world. But every song, every line means something…. more often than not it has multiple meanings depending on which way you interpret the lyrics….. but that’s what we like.”  Explain Waste Of Paint.

Indeed the band is named after a lyric from one of the masters of this craft Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes). The band, from its inception has always been an arts project. We just paint with sounds. Formed in Hull, Waste of Paint is an ever evolving door of creatives based around the songwriting duo of Adam Brodie and Dan Spooner. Typically Brodie is the wordsmith, and Spooner the producer, although they co-write and produce everything together.

The duo are known to perform acoustically on occasion, and have recently added the super talented Grace Christiansen to their line up enabling them to create three-part harmonies and add a piano to their guitars. It’s as a full band that the songs are written and recorded however. Drummer Jamie Dean is a founder member and has an impeccable ability to mix power and technical brilliance together to make truly wonderful canvases for the rest of the band to shine on. Completing the line-up is bassist and multi-instrumentlist Paul Sargeson who brings such a warm soulful groove to everything these guys do. Sargeson too has a fantastic voice and on occasion adds a 4th harmony to send the songs into the stratosphere.

It’s difficult to put Waste of Paint into a box or give them a label. At the same time it’s hard to mistake them for anybody else. But above all they are impossible to ignore. These are complex songs to be gorged upon. Designed and performed to tease out a reaction from you.
