Trust Your Gut is finally out today

Some thoughts about yet another brand new album

You're reading GET IT TOGETHER, a weekly newsletter that covers punk/indie/pop music, visual art, and related topics. I speak from a queer-feminist perspective about things that are often adjacent to my own creative practice.

This is a free post, but you can support my work for $5/month by becoming a newsletter supporter or sharing this with a friend. Thanks for reading.

The past five years feel like a lifetime. Every five years have felt that way for as long as I can remember. There's been a constant hum of how-did-we-get-here in a way where I don't recognize the person I used to be when I look back too far. I recently had the pleasure of being a guest on the First Ever Podcast hosted by Touché Amoré's Jeremy Bolm and the conversation was all about your first experiences with music, being in a band, making a record, etc. I was able to talk about how those first experiences shape how I approach Worriers and making records in a way that's wildly different from the kid who could barely play guitar in a basement that first show.

Today I'm proud to share a new album, Trust Your Gut, that I made with some incredibly talented friends. They took the time to believe in these songs and invest their time and energy into a new project. Worriers has always been a nebulous entity that I've had to wrangle into different forms, but this feels like a first. A first what, I'm not sure, but it's something special.

These songs took shape in the room I was renting in 2020, in my friends' back house apartments, in a closet in North Hollywood, in a guest bedroom in the Hudson Valley, in a small practice space on Sunset Boulevard. They're about learning when to trust yourself, when to let go, when it's going to be ok, and when it definitely wasn't ok. I don't entirely know how I got here but I do know we made something I've been dreaming up for a long time.

The record is out now wherever you purchase or stream music, most easily found on Bandcamp. When we were rehearsing for a recent show in Los Angeles, we also shot a music video for track 1, side 1 called "Hold My Breath".

On Trust Your Gut, Worriers is:
Lauren Denitzio - guitar, piano, vocals
Frank Piegaro - guitar
Atom Willard - drums
Franz Nicolay - piano, organ, synths

Ethan Philbrick - cello
