Melbourne, Australia-based Alternative Rock band Yours Truly have released the single and video for “Careless Kind” ahead of their impending EP is this what i look like?, due out Friday, July 15th, 2022 via UNFD. The single is an “emo-tinged offering” and stems from the band’s earlier Pop Punk leanings, but takes on more adult anxieties and “grown-up hurdles”.
Of the making of “Careless Kind”, Yours Truly vocalist Mikaila Delgado shares:
I wrote ‘Careless Kind’ after talking to a friend about my anxieties and listening to how chill they were about everything. I remember thinking, ‘I wish I could be like them, see things in black and white and not overthink absolutely everything.’ It tackles a lot of my health and social anxiety and how I feel like it constantly takes over my ability to be carefree because I’m always thinking ‘what if?’. Everything down to the scars on my ankles from an operation I had when I was young, which was where a lot of my self-consciousness began. It’s wishing I could reset my thoughts and remove the anxiety.
With their previous album, 2020’s Self Care, the band championed honesty, and is this what i look like? follows suit.
Yours Truly have played alongside Against The Current, Rise Against, and at various shows in the UK this year already. Following the release of is this what i look like? on July 15th, Yours Truly will join I Prevail, Pierce The Veil, and Fit For A King for a hefty North American tour throughout September and October, before the band embark on their national Australian headline tour, kicking off on November 24th.
