Premiere: Health Club launches out the gates with debut single, Waste Time

Featuring the woozy vocals of Minorfauna, the Queensland musician's debut single is one of the strongest this year.

In case you're yet to meet, Health Club is the production alias of Queensland's Lucas Reid, who after a stellar run of remixes for Paces and Kilter and a fancy production credit on the former's recent single Call The 5-0, is here to make an impact with his sensational debut single Waste Time. Featuring emerging Melbourne two-piece Minorfauna, themselves one of 2018's best new arrivalsWaste Time sees Health Club introduce us to his washed-out and subdued electronic sound, one that balances subtle synth melodies with a thick, yet incredibly intricate and finely layered percussive backbone. Minorfauna's soft, R&B-leaning vocal comes and goes over the top, adding this pop-like element to the single which really sets it apart from the rest and makes Waste Time an excellent debut from the 24-year-old rising name.

"[Waste Time is the] quickest song I've finished," he says on the single, which arrives with a hopeful promise – or more-so, a demand from us – of more new music in the rest of 2018. "The ideas came immediately and [Minorfauna] nailed it first go." It's delightfully laid-back and relaxed, soaked with this warm, summery flavour without feeling too overwhelming or obviously tropical-inspired – a pretty hard feat to do. Make sure you get around it now ahead of its full release on Friday:
