The Let Go – Delete My Feelings EP

'Delete My Feelings' is a fruitful, vibrant and emotionally charged step forward.

Label: Chess Club Records
Released: 18th March 2022

American indie-pop export The Let Go have returned with the succinctly-titled ‘Delete My Feelings’ mixtape – not their first short-form release, but one that reinvents their style and potential.

Making indie-pop their own with a glossy and vibrant sheen that stands out above the crowd, the six tracks deliver a cohesive narrative that flows through hopelessness, desperation and obsession, all of which serve to sonically manifest the fears we face mostly when “stoned alone”.

The powerful emotion surfaces through self-questioning on the whirring ‘Woke’ and furious ‘Last Year’s Model Club’, but the slower moments unmask a deeper pining, truthfully reflecting a relatable form of self-inflicted torture. While Cole and Scout aren’t afraid to unchain a melodic anger, laying bare their romantic existentialism is perhaps even more potent.

‘Beabadoobee’ – the track, not the artist – creates an atmospheric echo chamber with a rhythmic reliance that reiterates the desire to be treated better, but the delicate focus of closer ‘Ghost’ is the most uniquely haunting moment in the tracklist.

The Let Go have launched themselves upward as one of the most exciting and intriguing duos around – ‘Delete My Feelings’ is a fruitful, vibrant and emotionally charged step forward for a duo in it for the long haul.
