Her Leather Jacket Bleed For You On Cut Me Up

The Nashville duo grapple with feelings of inadequacy on their latest single.

Her Leather Jacket wear their hearts on their sleeves in their new single and video Cut Me Up — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

In a world where vulnerability meets the energetic rhythms of rock and pop punk, emerging duo Her Leather Jacket unveil an upbeat and emotionally charged banger that dives deep into the universal theme of not feeling enough for a partner who loves you immensely. With catchy melodies, driving guitar riffs, and impassioned vocals, Cut Me Up captures the tumultuous journey of self-doubt and insecurity within relationships.

Drawing from personal experiences, Her Leather Jacket pour their heart into every chord and lyric of Cut Me Up. The song’s poignant lyrics, written by Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, Almost) and Cameron Walker (Twin XL), explore the inner turmoil of feeling unworthy despite being showered with affection. Through anthemic choruses and introspective verses, listeners are invited to delve into the complexities of love, feeling exposed, and self-worth. “For us, the song is about someone questioning if they are good enough for their partner, and at the end of the day, they are there with an overwhelming, staggering kind of love,” the band shared in a statement.

Cut Me Up is a cathartic release for anyone who has grappled with feelings of inadequacy in relationships. Its relatable lyrics and infectious energy resonate with listeners, offering solace and solidarity in moments of doubt. With its dynamic instrumentation and emotive delivery, the track encapsulates the essence of pop punk while delivering a powerful message of self-acceptance and growth. Cut Me Up was produced by Gillespie, mixed by Matt Huber (Boys Like Girls), and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Adam Grover (Green Day, Zach Bryan). Ethan Howard was brought in as the drum recording engineer.

Hailing from East Nashville, Her Leather Jacket are swiftly making waves as a dynamic duo, seamlessly blending elements of pop-punk and alt-rock. Singer Manny Blu, who had previously made his mark in country music, felt compelled to explore his musical vision upon relocating to Nashville in 2018. It was here that he crossed paths with drummer Wes Snyder, forming a partnership that would ignite their creative journey. Drawing inspiration from iconic bands like Blink-182, All-American Rejects and All Time Low, Her Leather Jacket unleashed their debut self-titled EP in the fall of 2023, embracing the vibrant energy of post-pop punk. In 2024, they are embarking on a new era with an EP that promises to be both eagerly anticipated and chaotically epic. At the heart of Her Leather Jacket’s ethos lies a simple yet important mantra: “Make good fucking music and have a good fucking time.”

Cut Me Up marks the fourth single from their new EP The House That Chaos Built, set for release this summer. Watch the video for Cut Me Up above, hear more from Her Leather Jacket below, and join them on their website, Instagram, Facebook and TikTok.
