TUNE Liv Ellen - Wasted Emotion
Built on dark piano and trip-hop elements, ‘Wasted Emotion’ is an ambient exploration of heartbreak, emptiness, and the downward spiral of self-doubt. Combined with production that evokes James Blake, (Production by Magnus Thomson) the song is rich with shadows. I wanted to combine my love of R&B with a more experimental vibe, so I got my pianist (Yohan Kebede of Kokoroko) to lay down some jazz inspired keys.
I wrote this when I was going through a breakup, but the song wasn't really about them. I felt like I had lost a part of myself and I couldn't recognise myself. The build up really mirrors how in your feelings you can get when heartbroken. I had to write this song to cope with my loss and forgive myself.
