‘Wasting Time’ is the second track from O’Mearas forthcoming EP ‘Looking Forward To Hindsight’ The EP discusses how hindsight can be our best friend and our worst enemy, depending on the situation and what mindset you are in during or after the event has taken place.  First single ‘Is This Real’ honed in on the devastation caused by a deteriorating relationship and the hopeless feeling that comes with.

‘Wasting Time’ develops this story by detailing how when a relationship can’t be saved, it must be resolved, with the main resolution being a break up. O’Meara discusses the emotions and actions that people turn too through this period of time.

Pauric says, “Wasting time is the second stage of this relationship with hindsight. The heartbreak and pain is still very visible through the lyrics, but the up-tempo groove that the music provides highlights how through the toughest times, we can still find happiness and focus on enjoying life to the full.
