Following on from the release of their debut album Self Care, Australian four-piece Yours Truly are ushering in a new era with the release of their new single, Walk Over My Grave. The release arrives alongside a frenzied visual, directed by The AV Club.
Channelling Paramore on the track and its visual, the track conceptually explores the idea of being haunted by someone who is no longer in your life, playing on the idea that a shiver down your spine means someone is walking on your future grave. The four-piece continue their pop-punk sonic exploration, built upon frantic drums and memorable guitar melodies as frontwoman Mikaila Delgado's vocals soar.
Speaking of the track, Delgado shares: "I shiver a lot, and when I’d shiver this person would say 'someone must be walking over your grave', and that was just a thought that kept coming back to me after we weren’t close anymore. I shivered one day as I was driving and I remember pulling over and writing lyrics. I was wondering, did anything I ever said stick with them? Were they thinking about me too?"
The band were nominated for 'Best International Breakthrough Band' at the UK Heavy Awards, and recently embarked on their sold-out tour of the east coast. The four-piece will return to the stage this August/September, supporting label-mates Slowly Slowly on their national headline tour, as well as an appearance at Full Tilt Festival.
