Description

Jockstrap defy convention on Wicked City; an epic of an EP, flung into the world to respond to their debut ‚ÄėLove is the key to the City‚Äô. Speaking about the EP, member Georgia Ellery said: ‚ÄúWicked City is a response to Love is the key to the City: the two present a dichotomy in both understanding and feeling. The songs on Wicked City are presented in chronological order, with "Robert" written in the summer of 2018 and "City Hell" in summer 2019. The EP was finished in January 2020.

Ellery continues, ‚ÄúThe heavy autobiographical narrative of Wicked City is married to an expressive and limitless sound world; influenced by everything we [Georgia and Taylor] have ever musically absorbed and moulded with a ‚Äėfuck it‚Äô attitude. Particular musical features of this record include classical composition, through-composed songwriting and the heavy influence of dubstep. There are multiple narratives to Wicked City: sanity to madness; realism to surrealism and innocence to experience. But when it comes down to it, it‚Äôs a breakup / breakdown record that presents how I dealt with losing what I had when I wrote ‚Äėlove is the key‚Äô.‚ÄĚ
