Sydney’s wildest quartet Totally Unicorn have today released their heavily awaited album, Sorry is now available to stream on all platforms - released via The Farmer and the Owl and Inertia Music.
In two short years since the 2016 release of their debut, Dream Life, a lot has changed for Totally Unicorn - they haven't stopped bringing the good times, but now they’re getting real about what lies beneath the party. Vocalist Drew Gardner likens himself to the sad clown - and he’s going through some heavy times. Gone are the layers of metaphor, revealing a man dealing openly and unflinchingly with the pitfalls of life with his scars on full display.
Stylistically, Sorry springs from the band’s origins as party monsters and riff lords, but this time the music is decidedly deeper with less focus on stage antics and more playing to their strengths as musicians. Adopting a back-to-basics approach to songwriting, some songs feature a slow-burning, almost bluesy dirge unlike anything Totally Unicorn have ever attempted.
