Who’s excited to hear Yours Truly’s forthcoming debut album, Self Care later this month? After hearing current singles ‘Composure’, ‘Together’ and ‘Undersize’, You can bet your bottom dollar we are keen for it to drop already. The Australian pop punk four-piece are now adding their fourth single, ‘Funeral Home’ to your daily listening pleasure.
This one is a refreshingly upbeat pop punk anthem that’ll remind you of those awkward family encounters we experience at weddings and funerals. The song was born out of vocalist Mikaila Delgado’s personal experience on family as she grew older:
“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. 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.”
The song makes a valid point about our relationships with blood relatives and family as an adult, and realising that we only really speak to that one random uncle/aunt/cousin at a sombre family gathering like a funeral. Maybe this song will encourage us all to send that “hey, how’s it going?” message over Facebook to that uncle we don’t really know today, or even better pick up the actual phone. Or you can just bop to ‘Funeral Home’ all day long, we’re not gonna tell you what to do.
‘Funeral Home’ is the 4th single to drop off Yours Truly’s forthcoming debut album, Self Care, out September 18th through UNFD. Pre-order here
