Cry Club

Wollongong-via-Melbourne two-piece Cry Club are back with their third single ‘Two Hearts’ which premiered last night on triple j's Good Nights. Guitarist, Jonathon Tooke summerises: “‘Two Hearts’ is the closest thing we’ve got to a love song – well, complicated, sucky love.” Co-written between vocalist, Heather Riley and Tooke, ‘Two Hearts’ lyricisms contain dual intentions.

Riley feels the song unpacks a particularly harmful romantic dynamic. “I’d come out of a relationship where I’d ignored so many red flags because I was so desperate for someone to love me!  Which is not healthy,” explains Riley. “I think I was so scared of being alone that I didn’t care. That’s probably the core of the song: this kind of deranged loneliness that makes you so desperate and pathetic for a connection that you stop thinking rationally. You replay it in your head, create imaginary scenarios, think of all the ‘what-if’s – it’s exhausting!”

Whereas for Tooke, the lyrics are steeped in desiring a crush that’ll only lead to heartache. “My perspective was from the tension in those ‘will they, won’t they’ moments where you know that, logically, this thing is a very bad idea - but hey there you are still holding the emotional door open for this thing that will definitely not work and is actually super exhausting,” he explains. “So for me it’s always been about how easy it is to get love drunk and lose your sense of self preservation.”

Just like its predecessor, the consent anthem ‘DFTM’, this track was produced by Gab Strum. “He could see all the missing pieces of this sparkly pop puzzle,” says Riley of their collaborative effort. “I think every song we have is always going to sit in a different part of the pop to noise spectrum, so finding out how to thread that as a production is always a fun challenge,” adds Tooke.

In just over a year of performing, Cry Club’s unwaveringly energetic, wholesome set has seen them grace the stages of Yours and Owls Festival, Bigsound, and Laneway Festival. Their second single ‘DFTM’, a scathing addressal of when physical boundaries aren’t met at shows, was added to full rotation at triple j and featured on the station’s ‘Most Played’ list. ‘DFTM’ also saw Cry Club donned triple j’s Unearthed Feature Artist in March; they’ve seen rave reviews by The Music, Tone DeafPilerats, and triple j, who dubbed ‘DFTM’ “one of the best singles of the year.”
