The sophomore record from Totally Unicorn sees the band enter new territory which is much darker than their debut offering.
Sorry sees the exploring heavy themes of depression, divorce, substance abuse and the realities of growing older. With these new themes, the band has also altered the sonic elements of their music, injecting this record with a much more harsh, occasionally jarring and unsettling sound. This new sonic approach is particularly evident in the opening half of the record before settling into a more cohesive groove in the latter half, whilst still exploring these compelling and heartbreaking stories.
Overall Sorry is a difficult listen, simply due to the nature of the themes it dissects. Musically this is a fine record which will be suited to fans of harder punk rock elements.
