Even though we're relatively new to the Tysk Tysk Task bandwagon, it feels like we've been waiting forever for a full length from them. Luckily for us all, the wait is over as last week brought us the release of Everybody's Worried About Us.
The Lowell band has always had an awkward intensity to their music. Maybe it's just what we're all living through, but Everybody's Worried About Us seems to intensify that feeling. "Colorado River" kicks the album off and sets the mood for the album. Samantha Hartsel's vocals are almost painfully intense. At times this album isn't exactly pleasant to listen to, but that's not always the point of good art, right? "Colorado River" truly jerks the listener around with it's blend of indie rock, blues, and... whatever else Tysk Tysk Task inject into their music. That's not me being flippant. This is one of the few bands around that truly is doing their own thing. Besides the aforementioned indie rock and blues, there are the traces of electronic music and even pop. "Lovers' Covers" is a ballad that's a bizarro universe top 40 song.
You can listen to "My Mistake" below. Everybody's Worried About Us, the debut album from Tysk Tysk Task, is available now via Bandcamp. For more on Tysk Tysk Task, check them out on Facebook and Instagram.
