Take Care of Yourself by Blanco Tranco

Darkenin Heart

After the release of their recent EP I’ve Been Dying to Tell You, Melbourne alternative band Blanco Tranco return with a new single which shows a revived musical direction for the band. Take Care Of Yourself sounds a touch more moody, and is still a great mix of surf pop and dreampop, accordant with Blanco Tranco's previous material.

Vocalist and keyboardist Tiff explains the lyrical inspiration and the song's concept: "This song was definitely a little bit of a different direction for us after I’ve Been Dying to Tell You. It was, I think, the first new song we wrote after recording that EP so I think it really sets the tone of a new era for us. It’s a bit heavier and darker, there’s a lot going on here with the vocals especially. I’m always outta breath after performing this one! I wrote the lyrics in a really rough time during one of those little breaks between lockdowns. My mental health was pretty bad and I was struggling to try and be a person in those little periods of freedom. I couldn’t interact with anybody without chugging a bottle of wine beforehand, I was dealing with massive anxiety levels about the smallest things. I felt like I was deteriorating. But after this one night out I don’t know what happened but I felt like I got a little bit of spark back and it inspired me to get back to writing, and that’s when the vocals for Take Care were born."
