Tommy Lefroy have shared news that their new EP is set to drop in March, and the latest single from it is out now.
‘Worst Case Kid’ joins previous singles such as ‘Dog Eat Dog’ and ‘Jericho Beach’ in making up the ‘Rivals’ EP. The EP is set to drop in full on 10th March, and follows their 2021 debut EP ‘Flight Risk’. The release comes after the duo embarked on a sold out headline tour across the UK and Ireland, and supported Sigrid at the back end of last year.
On ‘Worst Case Kid’, the band shared: “This song personifies dysphoric thoughts as a sort of toxic love interest. It’s about how catastrophizing despite better judgement is much like returning to someone you know is bad for you. When you go through really intense bouts of depression, you come out of it feeling drenched, and when it’s okay again, ‘the witch is dead’, so to speak. We both struggle with bouts of sadness and the song is about getting through it.”
Discussing the forthcoming EP, Tommy Lefroy explained: “This EP is a lot more confident. It’s unapologetic. We were joking that Flight Risk was like the flight and Rivals is the fight. A sense of badness about it! In many ways it’s about the relationship we have with each other, how we challenge each other and protect each other.”
Tommy Lefroy have just announced that they will be joining Samia on her 2023 North American tour.
