There's No One New Around You (stylized in lower-case) is the debut studio EP from the American musician pronoun.


The four-track EP was self-released on 10-inch vinyl, compact disc and digital download on November 18, 2016. Recorded in her Brooklyn apartment, There's No One New Around You was intended to be a full-length album, until finishing the song "Snowed In", after which, she notes "it just felt like [the record] was done."[1][2] The album production, mixing, artwork and photography is by Pronoun.[2] The album title is based on an automated message from the social search engine mobile-phone application Tinder, and as Pronoun explains in an interview with City Pulse, after "scrolling through [...] and I reached the end and that's what it said. I thought, 'this is actually really beautiful, if you take it of context.'"[3] It is described as indie rock, post-punk and soft electronic filled with delicate, deeply personal tracks.[4]

The song "Just Cuz You Can't" is about a long-term relationship that she "thought would never end".[5] Its music video was directed by Sabyn Mayfield.[6]


For the song "Just Cuz You Can't", Stereogum writes it is a "driving and urgent rock song undercut by Vellturo's mumbled, passionate delivery," and Billboard calls it an "emotionally captivating track that channels the evolving timeline of a relationship."
