On Worry, Val Emmich is able to insert some of the most intense and touching emotional content we’ve ever heard. The taut instrumentation that begins to rise up as Emmich moves towards the chorus is similarly strong. There are just so many layers at which listeners can enjoy the track. We like how the vocals / instrumentation insistently hurtle towards chaos before Worry pivots to an entirely different sound. Emmich has had success in a number of different roles, but the music issuing forth from Val’s mind may be his strongest work yet. For fans of Bright Eyes, At The Drive-In, and The Rocket Summer.
