PREMIERE: Chakra Efendi – Waste of Space
At just 18 years old, Chakra Efendi, has an impressive back catalogue of noise pop demos and bedroom recordings that sit at just under 100,000 streams on Soundcloud. Today, Laundry Echo, is stoked to be premiering Chakra Efendi’s brilliant debut single Waste of Space.
It takes just seconds for Chakra Efendi’s debut single Waste of Space to sonically spit in the face of it’s namesake. An immersion of noise takes hold of its listener as layered guitars and frantic drums set a nervously energetic platform for the remarkably cool Efendi to plaster his calm and controlled lyricism. Every sound sits perfectly be it bustling, dropping out entirely or biting back in. There is an ever-present consideration in construction here that ultimately allows Efendi to vocally conduct the listener experience with a voice well beyond his years.
It’s impressive and poignant songwriting from a talent who has spent the past year pricking up ears throughout his home city of Brisbane. Efendi and his live band developing a reputation in the city that has seen them firmly planted on must-see lists a plenty and grace stages with the likes of Crywank and These New South Whales.
Soon to be touring the single on the back of Flowertruck’s upcoming QLD tour, Chakra Efendi, is an artist to get on board with now.
