Formed in 2016 in Sydney by vocalist Mikaila Delgado, guitarists Teddie Winder-Haron and Lachlan Cronin, and drummer Bradley Cronon, the group quickly earned themselves a fan base, gigging relentlessly around Australia with their blend of anthemic, emo-inspired pop-punk. By 2017, Yours Truly had self-released their debut EP, Too Late for Apologies, and played dates with the likes of Forever Ends Here and Tonight Alive. The following year they dropped the single "High Hopes," which instantly got national radio play and saw them secure support slots with the likes of We the Kings and Say Anything. More live dates followed in 2018 before the group entered the studio to record their second EP. Preceded by the tracks "Circles" and "I Can’t Feel," Afterglow was officially released at the beginning of 2019.
