With the average age of 21, Yours Truly is fresh to the scene with their second release but their debut LP just dropping called Self Care. The record hints at an extremely bright future for vocalist Mikaila Delgado and her band mates.
First and foremost, Delgado has an intensely powerful voice. It's one of the most impressive vocals on record, and that Delgado put it together at such a young age makes it all the more remarkable. She'll grow and get better but if this is just the start.... damn.... it's going to be good.
In addition to Delgado's vocal, her ability to write lyrics is superb too. They're relatable and universal but still specific to her. There's a lot of cool lyrical content here and it's all paired with some surprisingly nuanced melodies.
Yours Truly's Self Care is a welcome surprise. The album doesn't feel like a life changing entry, but the band itself is a must listen. They’re young and they should grow into something crazy good over the course of their next couple of albums. They write good music and their vocalist is entirely unique. There's nobody quite like her. You can listen to this album now or you can listen to it after everybody else is talking about how good this band is a year or so from now. Your call.
