oathe have revealed a new collaboration version of their track ‘Is It Really You?‘, with LA based alt-rock band Teenage Wrist. Taken from their 2020 record I Let It In And It Took Everything, ‘Is It Really You?‘ has been identified as one of the pivotal moments in Loathe‘s sonic evolution, in-part due to it’s shoegaze laced atmosphere. This new version is a lustrous interpretation, embracing the track’s almost dream-pop aesthetic.

Marshall Gallagher from Teenage Wrist stated,
“We discovered ‘I Let It In and It Took Everything’ while we were tracking ‘Earth Is A Black Hole’, and it immediately became one of my favourite records of that year. Honestly, I only listened deep to a handful of records while we were making ours and that was one of them. So, it was pretty wild to get to dig through the actual tracks and do our own interpretation of ‘Is It Really You?’ – I was already such a big fan and that song in particular really hit me. It’s extra cool to know that we’re fans of each other’s music and hopefully we get to share a stage soon.”

Loathe stated,
“Teenage Wrist are great! We’ve been fans of their music for a while and soon after the release of their latest record we caught wind that they’d be interested in collaborating with us. And so their take on ‘Is It Really You?’ was born. It’s interesting to hear our song through another artists respective lens, especially from artists you appreciate and enjoy too.”
