“Waste My Time” by Singer/Songwriter and producer Ernest Gorka is a captivating blend of 60’s style contemporary pop infused with raw emotion and laid-back charm. The song shows us how Gorka retains authenticity, and vulnerability, and pursues genuine connections, disregarding the pretense and superficiality.
At its core, “Waste My Time” is a plea for honesty and transparency in relationships. Gorka’s lyrics depict someone tired of playing games and being superficial. The repeated refrain, “I won’t waste your time if you don’t waste my time,” confronts the truth head-on.
Musically, “Waste My Time” creates a lush sonic landscape with shimmering guitar melodies and thumping drums. Gorka’s baritone voice, thick with emotion and authenticity, is the perfect vehicle for conveying the song’s message of self-discovery and introspection. His delivery is intimate and honest, which drives his message home and connects us and this world simultaneously.
The singer has admitted to Post Malone’s album Austin and Liam Gallagher’s music influencing “Waste My Time.” It seems he was greatly influenced by the expressive and emotionally resonant vocals in Austin and the London regal coolness and vigor donned by Gallagher.
“Waste My Time” is Gorka stripping down all the facades of modernity and coming through as unapologetically himself. He shows us how to not get lost in the fakeness and stay rooted in one’s beliefs. In a world filled with distractions and illusions, “Waste My Time” can be your unlikely savior.
