In 2013, Atlanta band Places To Hide released Almost Nothing, a pop-punk record featuring lyrics that perfectly capture the feeling of being young, broke, and in love such as “The summer is so hot / and I just want to have sex with you” and “I cried myself to sleep again / I know that that’s not punk.” While a majority of the lyrics are situationally or emotionally relatable, they were set apart by the lack of restraint with which they were delivered. The foursome followed up Almost Nothing with the Tiny Engines-released Wild N Soft 7” a year later. The four songs seemed to promise another full-length, and today, Places To Hide announce their final album, Strange Lyfe.
