Emotional Creature was largely informed by Trifilio’s love of sci-fi stories and the Y2K pop of her childhood idols like the Jonas Brothers. The Artist of the Month alums recorded the follow-up to their 2020 debut Honeymoon at Chicago’s Shirk Studios with producer Sean O’Keefe, known for work with pop-punk legends like Fall Out Boy and Motion City Soundtrack.
“We are always changing, growing, and adapting — it’s a deeply ingrained part of the human experience,” Trifilio wrote in a statement. “We strive to be stronger, trust we’ll grow smarter, and spend most of our lives reaching for comfort and happiness. Sometimes, life is stagnant, sometimes, life is difficult — but the wonderful part of being human is that we evolve and make the bleak moments beautiful — we find new ways to survive. Humans are emotional creatures and I wanted to capture that with this album in order to show how complex, sometimes tragic, and mostly wonderful the human experience can be.”
The 12 tracks of Emotional Creature navigate the ins and outs of romantic relationships, and finding your own worth within them. The record includes the singles “Karaoke,” “Fire Escape,” and “Oxygen.” You can stream it on Spotify and Apple Music below.
