Ryan Bourne Comes Alive with “Wasted World”

Calgary indie mainstay Ryan Bourne has a new single to share from Plant City, his upcoming solo album which blends idiosyncratic takes on garage pop, glammed-out rock cruisers, baroque pop, and dark psych-folk.

Wasted World” captures the mess of being lovesick amidst a manic loss of control through distorted, guitar driven new wave. 

The melody for “Wasted World” came from a dream, with lyrics playing on the theme of having hopelessly fallen in love. “I got this sickness” – all the ecstatic, nauseating overwhelm of dopamine rushing and brain chemicals swirling.
