The Crookes – I Wanna Waste My Time On You

the crookesI Wanna Waste My Time On You is the latest single be Sheffield four piece The Crookes. The single is taken from their forthcoming fourth album The Lucky Ones, out on January 26th via Anywhere Records (UK/Europe) and Modern Outsider (US).

I Wanna Waste My Time On You is a poppy post punk track that reminds me a lot of The Cure. In many ways, it’s a lot happier than their previous more melancholic tunes.

Daniel Hopewell (lyrics/guitar) remarks:

’I Wanna Waste My Time On You’ was the first song we wrote for the album and it sort of set the tone about what we wanted to achieve. I always see songs as colours (I’m not sure if it’s synesthesia or not) but the last album was black and grey, whereas these songs are all blue and pink and bright yellow.

The release of I Wanna Waste My Time On You includes B-side Ex-Lovers featuring Misty Miller. Stream both tracks below.
