Australia’s pop-punk darlings Yours Truly have revealed the music video for latest single ‘Together’ today, which casts the band as video game characters.
It follows a huge few weeks for the four-piece, who upon announcing details of their highly-anticipated debut album ‘Self Care’, were revealed as the newest addition to Select Agency’s huge roster of clients, as well as the latest hand picked guest for triple j’s famed Like A Version segment. The band took on a huge cover of Oasis’ classic ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ last week and performed their own single and album track ‘Composure’ to feverish listeners. Check it all out below.
After only a short few years on the scene – and out of high school for that matter – Yours Truly have earmarked themselves as one of Australia’s most striking rising stars. With tours alongside Sum 41 & Senses Fail, festival offers from the likes of Download UK, Riot Fest, Slam Dunk & Sad Summer and 9+ Million streams on their recent EP ‘Afterglow’ already under their belt, Self Care promises to be another breakout moment for the four-piece.
The record unravels the momentous year 2019 was for the band, who in between incessant international touring were still dealing with all of the usual challenges faced at 21; uni, retail jobs and breakups, and leant on writing their debut album as a means to reflect and cope.
‘Self Care’ finds Yours Truly unravelling the most momentous year of their lives. After the release of ‘Afterglow’ in April 2019, the band found themselves tackling incessant international touring and mounting imposter syndrome. Alongside all the usual challenges faced at 21; uni, retail jobs and breakups, the process of writing their debut album would prove daunting, yet the perfect antidote to the whirlwind they were living.
“There was this almost electric feeling of excitement about getting to sit down and write our first record but also a huge feeling of anxiety at the same time,” reflects vocalist Mikaila Delgado. “We didn’t want to release something and have people say that we’re actually not that good and weren’t worthy of all the success we were getting… it was like we all had imposter syndrome.”
The record’s namesake embodies the crux of what the album meant for the four-piece during their rapid ascension – a healing process, an overcoming of doubt – and would hopefully offer to its listeners.
“We really learnt and lived a lot in one year, and writing these songs allowed me to understand myself on a whole new level throughout it all,” Mikaila adds.
“The experience was a true form of self-care that ended with me feeling stronger, smarter, enlightened and positive after a rollercoaster of emotions. For me, this album was my version of soaking in vanilla candles and that comforting taste of chocolate and red wine under blankets. We hope it brings solace to whoever listens to it and can relate too.”
