Yawn is the music project of artist and musician Julia McDougall. Her style is a mixture of synth pop and dream pop. Bleeps, hazy synths, fluid and flowing vocals and a smattering of tuned percussion and saxophone flesh out her new single ‘Wasting Time’. It has a quietly upbeat nature to it and a lovely message about pushing your own boundaries and embracing yourself. I also really enjoy how the chorus sounds like what I’d imagine St Vincent to sound like if she did dream pop. Both St Vincent and Yawn have similar vocal timbres.
‘Wasting Time’ is Yawn’s first track since her breakthrough EP ‘You and I’ which came out last year. That EP had a slightly more cabaret pop vibe to it and so this track marks a subtle change towards more synth-based work. Regardless, it all sits under the ‘good adult pop’ umbrella. Enjoy the single below, it is out now.
