That’s right, there’s a Yours Truly and Josh Franceschi collaboration for you to savour. You Me At Six’s singer joined the Australian alternative band on the deeply emotional song Hallucinate.
“Hallucinate is an anxiety attack turned into music, detailing how it takes over your body so totally that it feels as if you’re under the influence of something. I’ve struggled badly with anxiety and it’s debilitating every day to be at war with your own thoughts. It’s one of the darkest songs we’ve ever written but I found a lot of power in pulling out the chaos of how anxiety feels and sounds to me.”
Hallucinate by Yours Truly and Josh Franceschi is taken from Yours Truly’s new EP, is this what I look like? which is out on July 15, 2022, on UNFD. It will also feature a guest spot by DR€W ¥ORK from Stray From the Path.
It’s not every day that you hear a band mention Head Automatica alongside more standard contemporary inspirations like Bring Me The Horizon, The 1975, and Bloc Party.
The EP started off as a much smaller project. It was just intended as three songs to balance out the ‘sunshine and butterflies’ tone of the band’s ARIA-nominated debut album. This was intended to reflect how the band now found themselves and the world.
“We spent that whole album telling people everything was going to be alright but the world had clearly taken a turn. Over the past few years, self care has been incredibly difficult…My entire adult life has been YOURS TRULY. With that taken away, I was in a bad place. Not being able to perform was depressing…all the songs are about coming to terms with who you are and who you want to be ”Mikaila Delgado
