Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, alt-pop duo Yours has officially released their debut track “Summer Is Bad.” The abstract, whimsical piece dives into the trials of depression and how hard it can be to hold on to hope and accept help.
“The sun symbolizes help, a friend reaching to pull you out from the darkness. In my case, one of the challenges with going through depression is that it’s hard to see when someone is really trying to help. The lines between friend and foe get blurry,” shares vocalist Amanda on the single.
After meeting over a decade ago while they both were in different bands, Amanda and Alice came together to create Yours — a project synonymous with individuality, artistic freedom and fun. Amanda compliments her lead vocals with bass, piano and synth while Alice holds down the beat on the drums and supports with vocals and guitar. Their sound ranges from alternative pop to electronic rock while the songs they write are about everything from fighting back against depression to self-discovery.
“Yours is an adventure. We’re always changing, we are never staying the same, and we expect our music to change with us,” shares the band on this new project. “On this journey, we hope you discover things you didn’t even know about yourself.”
