Australian pop-punk band, Yours Truly, is back with two of their newest singles. Getting ready for their EP “is this what i look like?” on July 15th they released, “Lights On” and “Hallucinate (feat. Josh Franceschi).”
The bands album, “Self Care,” received an ARIA nomination for Best Hard Rock/heavy album in 2021. This year they are releasing a seven track EP, “is this what i look like?,” via UNFD on July 15th. They are heading to the UK for an appearance at Slam Dunk Festival followed by other festivals in the UK/EU and Australia.
“Hallucinate” features Josh Franceschi of You Me At Six. This is a pop-rock anthem that Mikaila Delgado explains as “an anxiety attack turned into music.” The two of them are a perfect duo with the way their voices complement one another.
Delgado continues, “I’ve struggled badly with anxiety and it’s debilitating every day to be at war with your own thoughts. It’s one of the darkest songs we’ve ever written, but I found a lot of power in pulling out the chaos of how anxiety feels and sounds to me and putting it in a song.”
“Lights On,” another single they released, has been on a constant repeat since the first time I heard it. I get an old Paramore sound mixed with an electro edge. I can say I am now a fan of Yours Truly, and I am looking forward to this new EP.
