Salt Lake City's Worlds Worst debuted last year with a four-song EP and now they're gearing up to release their second EP, EP2 -- which was mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Jeff Rosenstock, Joyce Manor) -- on June 25 via Open Door Records (pre-order). They recently released lead single "Balloons," and we're now premiering second single "Twins," both of which exist somewhere in between post-hardcore, emo, grunge, and shoegaze. A lot of bands occupy that space, but Worlds Worst do it in a way that stands out from the pack.

"We wrote and recorded this song during the pandemic which had forced me into working a shitty job," they say of "Twins." "I was surrounded by miserable people and I was feeling miserable myself. 'Twins' is all about these frustrations - it’s the song you listen to on the way home from the job you hate. This song is probably my favorite on the tape and I’m excited to have it out!"
