It might be two years since we’ve had new music from Yours Truly, yet the Sydney rockers don’t miss a step on ‘Call My Name’. With its infectious, driving chorus, and Mikaila Delgado’s sleek yet potent vocals, it’s a welcomed return for the Aussie trio.
Beyond its bold, alt-rock sound, ‘Call My Name’ has a deeper meaning as Delgado reflects on the relatable situation of trying to get acceptance from those who put you down. “Call My Name is about the internal struggles of being addicted to a person that you know is bad for you,” says Yours Truly‘s frontwoman. “You turn away from all their red flags because you have so much hope that they can be the person you created in your dreams. You defend them and begin to blame yourself. I realised that we as people crave acceptance from the people who make us feel we are not enough and on the other side some people use that power to their advantage. At the end of the day you realise some things aren’t meant to be and you need to make peace with that.”
Completed by guitarist Teddie Winder-Haron and drummer Henry Beard, Yours Truly‘s return follows the acclaimed ‘is this what i look like?’ EP. It’s a collection that showed a darker side, evolving from their pop-punk origins yet retained the bold hooks.
With this first slice of new music, don’t be surprised if there’s more to come from Yours Truly in the coming months.
