Just when we thought 'first love' was indescribable, "Waste the Day" takes the unspoken emotions of new love and bottles them up into a simple and catchy EP. In his first release, Michael Alvarado uses a smart but real approach to songwriting; one that engages the mind with unforgettable melodies yet is effortless to listen to. This EP evokes a smooth execution to vocals, such as John Mayer, and intertwines them with the intriguing simplicity of Colbie Caillat. This college-notebook collection of songs portrays a relatable aspect of love that will stamp the chorus forever on the mouths of those hungry for Pop music. "Waste the Day" contributes crooner like intervals and John Legend phrasing to create an enjoyable atmosphere, stripped down and genuine. With every song written and performed by Alvarado, "Waste the Day" suggests a brilliant start for this young artist and will have the listener falling in love all over again, track by track.
