Glasgow based artist Pinc Wafer returns with ‘0%’, his first single since his breakout Needed EP.

“0%” from Pink Wafer has been sitting in my  drafts folder for a few weeks now but it’s been on repeat on headphones. It’s bright and funky with shimmering blue-eyed soul vocals and a gorgeous pop melody.

Kent Raised, David Waters (aka Pinc Wafer) output has that unique bedroom recorded edge, but also a smooth finish and a welcoming pop shimmer in his production.

The buoyant vibe contrasts the lyrics about the end of a relationship. Waters comments: “I tend to write words that come to my head and work out what they mean later. In this experience, it was more to do with realising I was going through a hard time without knowing it.

“I was drinking a lot of alcohol and I was going through a very rocky patch in a relationship. I thought let’s get some alcohol free beer in, and wasn’t working out for me, I was missing the real stuff. And so that’s the idea of this song, 0% alcohol, but then I realised at the same time that it was meaning 0% love, but realising you still need and care about this person.”

Having already been played on BBC Introducing Scotland, shared the stage with Only The Poets and played festivals like Stag & Dagger and Camden Rocks, Pinc Wafer ties a bow on his EP as he melds the downcast subject matter of that release with a more enthusiastic sound, hinting towards more positive material ahead.
