Felix Riebl – ‘Wasting Time (feat. Katy Steele)’

Former co-frontman of The Cat Empire, Felix Riebl, has released a strangely entrancing music video for Wasting Time, a song taken from his forthcoming solo album Paper Doors and featuring vocals from Little Birdy’s Katy Steele.

Wasting Time is certainly a more melancholy song than you might expect from the man who wrote The Cat Empire’s hit single Hello, yet Riebl’s unique voice and enigmatic performance suit the sombre mood perfectly. Steele, for her part, adds great depth to the song, singing in harmony with Riebl but also often in counterpoint, taking the melody higher and into her lofty vocal range.

The song’s video is also more low key than you might expect, built around a series of faceless characters presented in disconnected tableaus, unified by Riebl’s face superimposed into the frames held over the faces of each figure.

Paper Doors is set for release on 2nd September.
