DIY LK‘s resident emos-in-chief Casavettes round out a year that’s seen them tour the length of the land on the back of their debut album, Senselessness. One of the most prolific acts in the most prolific music city on the island, they’re back with new single ‘Imposter Syndrome’ – a 2nd wave homage which firmly posits them as potentially the finest of their ilk in Ireland.

Like Senselessness, the single was engineered and produced by Mícheál Keating of Bleeding Heart Pigeons. Artwork comes from Eilis Mahon (Girlfriend/icebear). Frontman Diarmuid Ó Sé told us more about how the track came together:

“I started writing it directly after the album came out, and it just began to feel like a standalone track. I’d been listening to a lot of Mineral & American Football over the past couple of years, and after seeing both bands recently, I really wanted to explore that sound a bit more. Our album ended up being a bit more post-hardcore than emo, so this song was a chance to dip into the latter. The title is fairly self-explanatory. The lyrics also deal with the other regular fun stuff like self-doubt, anxiety, and existentialism. Standard enough.”
