youproblem is a brand new and hugely exciting alt-pop collaboration between Sydney producer/ drummer Alistair Hayes and singer/ songwriter Alana Patmore.

Today sees the release of their impressive self-produced debut, ‘Wasting Time’. Written about the pull of codependency, infatuation, and neglecting your responsibilities for someone else, the song was mixed by Joel Quartermain and presents conversational pop melodies over bright and gritty sounds.

“’Wasting Time’ is an ode to all the time and sacrifices you make when you’re young, dumb, and in love. It’s about that obsession with someone that makes everything else seem like it doesn’t matter. The beginning of codependency in a naive love situation. It’s basically me dating in uni.” – Alana

“This song came together so easily when Alana told me what she wanted to write about. It was obvious we wanted to go almost sarcastically bubbly and boppy over the more personal and kinda depressing lyrics.” – Alistair
