Review: McCafferty – Yarn

McCafferty - Yarn

There’s no holding back on Yarn for McCafferty. The band tackles tough subjects and kicks off the album with “Loser.” The first line is “I saw the loser trip and fall” and it sets the tone for the entire album. McCafferty lets it all out on this record. Last year, they returned from their hiatus with Thanks. Sorry. Sure. and while they had a lot to say then, this album feels even more honest and personal than the EP.

McCafferty Drop Off Moose Blood Tour

McCafferty have dropped off their upcoming tour with Moose Blood to focus on some mental health healing:

We are sad to announce that McCafferty will be dropping off the remainder of Moose Blood’s spring tour in order to seek help for mental health. The tour has been fantastic and it has been great to meet so many of you, but it has taken a toll on Nick’s health and life.

We would like to apologize to Moose Blood in addition to any fans coming to these shows. We wish we could see you and share our music with you.

Review: McCafferty – Thanks. Sorry. Sure.

Mccafferty - Thanks. Sorry. Sure.

McCafferty are just the latest band to come out of the machine that is Take This To Heart Records. Their new EP, Thanks. Sorry. Sure., gives you a taste of what the band has to offer. They have a versatility that shows with each song. The band started a GoFundMe campaign in order to work on this EP before the label picked them up and the result is great. The quartet is the latest band out of the Ohio music scene, which seems to be producing some great bands lately.

“Trailer Trash” immediately grabs your attention with some shouting before the song truly comes in. From there, they hook you with lyrics like “I’m the worst of the worst,” that give a raw perspective on their thoughts and emotions. “Cut Out The Pieces” and “Daddy Long Legs” both get some acoustic guitar to start the songs. The band does a nice job of blending the acoustic aspect in with the full band sound.
