I was blown away by Bertie Newman's latest single, "Wasted On Me." As someone who's experienced the rollercoaster of emotions that comes with a new relationship, this song hit me right in the feels. The textured indie-folk track features upbeat acoustic pop strings and enriching backing vocal choruses that perfectly capture the feeling of being swept off your feet by a new love. Bertie's heartfelt and vulnerable lyrics explore the initial insecurities that come with starting a new relationship. It's easy to relate to the feeling of wondering if you're good enough for your partner, and whether they're wasting their time with you. The marching rhythm that replicates the feeling of your heart practically beating out of your chest adds to the emotional intensity of the song. With "Wasted On Me" and "I Will" both set to feature on Bertie's upcoming EP, Thoughts So Loud, I'm excited to hear what else he has in store. It's no surprise that Bertie has already amassed millions of streams on platforms like Apple Music and Spotify, and I have no doubt that he's destined for even greater success in the future.
