Chicago's Worry Club have returned with a fresh new EP called ur not real. Following up engaging indie laced singles such as "Pretty Face" and "Lately" with John the Ghost, their latest EP finds them expanding upon their genre-blending sound to provide an energizing, surreal set of six tracks that flow together with much cohesion.
"skate 3 speed glitch (ur not real)" takes on a stripped-back approach that draws influences from folk, indie, and hyper-pop and introduces the EP with a ghostly, ethereal mood. Next, lead single "Pretty Face" picks up the pace with punchy drums rolling beneath textural guitars and infectious, hazy vocals. "Vince Vaughan" draws from hip-hop production with trap-influenced percussion that locks in an unhurried rhythm as warm guitars ring out above. Dreamlike verses add layers to the song and enhance its mercurial mood, while showcasing the band's ability to craft memorable melodies. Lastly, the project closes out with the melancholic "Bleach", which features nostalgic, drifting guitars and laid-back drums that underscore their cutting, candid vocals.
