The video is set in Medieval 13th century England and was filmed at Kirkstall Abbey and Adel Woods in Leeds by Riccardo Cavani for London Filmmakers.

Stella Wembley interview on “Wasting My Time”.

The “Wasting My Time” EP features 4 tracks with the title track being about self-confidence, self-empowerment, hope, change and transformation so the musician explains. “Whenever there is a traumatic experience, I take the pain and put it into art, creating a song. The lyrics are autobiographical, and reference the difficulties I have gone through in the last 14 years, which I’ve finally overcome.”

“Betrayal, judgment and abandonment have been a constant in my life, and extremely painful, especially because it came from the people closest to me – family, friends- and having to manage this as well as my music career and record label wasn’t easy. This is how this song was born but, above all, it represents a new chapter in my life. Today, I feel powerful, and stronger than ever. I left the past in the past and cut all toxic relationships from my life. I love myself and I am finally free.”

Next to the title track the EP will feature 3 remixes: the “Cold Minimal Remix”, and the “Bionic Visions Electro Remix” and the “Bionic Visions Dark Ambient Remix”. The latter two ones were created by Enrico Knob aka Bionic Visions, an Italian music producer, arranger and re-mixer.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
