Right before the global lockdowns due to the pandemic, Yours Truly was able to release their current single “Composure”, a taste of their forthcoming new album. The song was written during a period of heartbreak for lead singer and songwriter, Mikaila Delgado. She stated, “‘Composure’ is about trying to keep your cool at the end of a relationship and how difficult it can be. It’s natural to be upset, angry and a million different other emotions at once. I wrote it at a time when I really needed to reclaim my self worth after losing so much of it, I was over being miserable waiting for acceptance.” The accompanying music video is what the band describes as representative of the band’s growth as Delgado stated, “We wanted this to feel very personal and ‘hand made’ which is why stitch work and embroidery is such a feature in the video. I wanted to have us animated in the video to look like fabric so we called on our friend Georgia (Moloney) who actually created the single artwork to do it on camera!” The band is preparing for the release of their debut album after the success of their two EPs, ‘Afterglow’ and ‘High Hopes’, which garnered much critical acclaim.
Yours Truly spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar about their early formation via Facebook while still in high school, reflect on the early success and expanded on the heartbreak that led to a wealth of material that comprises most of their forthcoming debut album.
