Melbourne alternative band, Yours Truly have returned with “Careless Kind” taken from their upcoming EP, is this what i look like?, due out Friday, July 15 via UNFD. The emo-tinged track takes cues from some of the band’s earlier pop-punk sounds, touching on the anxiety of facing life’s grown-up hurdles. Listen to it now below.

Of the making behind the raw yet vigorous anthem, vocalist Mikaila Delgado shared, “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 Self Care scooping up an ARIA nomination for Best Hard Rock/heavy album, Yours Truly’s impending new EP is this what i look like? once again champions honesty like its predecessor, while also embracing more recent influences for the band internally, looking to the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Bloc Party, The 1975, Head Automatica, and beyond to grow their previously-established pop punk sound into more assured and eclectic waters.
Later this year, Yours Truly will join I Prevail, Pierce The Veil, and Fit For A King for an absolutely stacked North American tour throughout September and October, before the band embark on their national Australian headline tour, kicking off on Thursday, November 24.
