Aussie pop-punk outfit Yours Truly have shared new single ‘Funeral Home’ ahead of debut album Self Care arriving later this month.
“I wrote ‘Funeral Home’ after going to a funeral and realising how odd it is to be in a room of people you’re related to because someone has died,” the band’s Mikaila Delgado explains.
“I was thinking about how sad it is that you miss the life of someone you have the same blood as and all of a sudden in tragedy everyone suddenly comes together as family yet then won’t talk until the next one.”
Their debut full-length, Self Care follows a pair of EPs from the group – Too Late for Apologies in 2017 along with last year’s Afterglow.
“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,” Delgado commented upon the album’s announcement back in July.
“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.”
