London Grammar is an English Indie Rock trio comprising vocalist Hannah Reid, guitarist Daniel Rothman and multi-instrumentalist Dot Major. Hannah admitted to Digital Spy
that she was troubled before the unveiling of this single. "I was really worried about that before it went online," she said. "For me, the songs I love the most are like 'Hey Now' and 'Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me'; the more unusual ones. So before 'Wasting' went up I was terrified. I was like, 'This is it, this is the end.' But people do like it, and I think that's as far as our 'pop' sound will go."
