Brooklyn’s Worriers broke out in 2013 as one of the most exciting bands on Don Giovanni Records, the reliable New Jersey punk label that has recently issued records by Waxahatchee, Screaming Females, and Downtown Boys. Even on that label’s stacked roster, though, Worriers stand out for their pointedly political lyrics and knifing musical efficiency. The band’s 2015 full-length debut, the Laura Jane Grace-produced Imaginary Life, wedded Lauren Denitzio’s sneaky melodic instincts with a powerful lyrical purpose, particularly on the back-to-back standouts “Yes All Cops” (a call for action against injustice and corruption) and “They / Them / Theirs” (advocating for gender-neutral language). Worriers recently moved to SideOneDummy Records, releasing a new single, “Future Me.” Typesetter, Contentious, and 4th Curtis open.
