Don’t Worry share new single, ‘Who Cares (U Care)’
Album release show this Saturday at The Lexington, London
UK headline tour starts next week
Essex’s Don’t Worry have released the latest single from their album ‘Who Cares Anyway?’, out now on Specialist Subject Records.
Since forming in 2014, the band have self-released a string of EPs, toured the UK extensively, and played shows across mainland Europe and this March played their first show in New York for Sofar Sounds.
Taking influence from throughout rock and pop history, from Weezer / Dinosaur Jr to The Cure / Smiths and more modern influences like Manchester Orchestra, Kevin Devine, Elliott Smith. The band have slowly developed their sound to where they are now on their first full length, Who Cares Anyway? .
Lyrically, songs deal with navigating life as a young person in the late 2010s and all of the anxiety and uncertainty that comes with it. Using mundane observation and humour as tools for expression, the words serve as catharsis for the band’s main songwriters, Ronan and Sam. Despite a largely American sound the band retain a distinct British sensibility through the vocals and lyrical content.
Recorded and produced by long term collaborator Bob Cooper (Citizen, Self Defence Family, Nervus), and mastered by Carl Saff (Dinosaur Jr, Cloakroom, Tiny Moving Parts) over in the USA. This album is the perfect showcase for everything the band has worked towards over the past few years.
