Yours Truly Shares New Single ‘Careless Kind’

aussie pop punk

Melbourne-based alt/pop-punks release their latest single ahead of their new EP, is this what I look like?

Armed with raw honesty and heightened sonic influences, Melbourne alternative mainstays Yours Truly return today ahead of their upcoming new EP, is this what i look like? due out Friday, 15th July via UNFD, bringing their most potent anthem yet via new single Careless Kind.

An emo-tinged offering from the Melbourne quartet, Careless Kind takes cues from some of Yours Truly’s earlier pop-punk leanings; but in place of wistful teen angst and relationship woes is a cultivated take on ongoing anxieties and facing life’s grown-up hurdles, complete with plenty of bounce and simmering sonic snarls.

Of the making behind the raw yet vigorous anthem that is Careless Kind, 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 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.

Boasting appearances in 2022 alone on stage at UNIFY and Slam Dunk Festival, Yours Truly has also played alongside Against The Current, Rise Against this year and at various shows in the UK. Following the release of, is this what i look like? on July 15, 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, 24th November.
