Tell me about “Waste of Space” what’s the story behind it?
G Flip: "Waste Of Space" is the story about me struggling with understanding my gender identity at a young age.
The video feels so different, how did it come together?
G Flip: The song is very raw and emotional. It speaks about my gender identity. My creative director is also nonbinary so they were very connected to the song as well. We wanted to make the most authentic piece of art to represent the song and the nonbinary community so we came up with a simple concept of using nonbinary people who have gone through similar journeys to tell the story of "Waste Of Space."

I’m a concert enthusiast who loves tea and boybands. If I’m not at a concert I’m probably reading a book, fangirling, or jamming out to One Direction. I’m very passionate about music and love the way it brings people together. I love moments where friendships blossom over a mutual love for an artist.
