There are plenty of songs about growing up, and probably even more about growing up in New Jersey. But on Worriers‘ new single “The Possibility,” out today, singer/guitarist Lauren Denitzio writes a response to the overly romanticized version of New Jersey that reflects their actual experience growing up queer in the Garden State. “This song is for teenage me, who needed a love song that wasn’t just about riding around town with your sweetheart down the shore.”
Like most of the songs off of Worriers forthcoming album Survival Pop, “The Possibility” is an act of self-preservation. “I wrote the majority of the songs on this record thinking about what kinds of songs past versions of myself would’ve needed or been listening to at different points in my life.”
