Places to Hide - Strange Lyfe - LP (2015)

Labels: Irrelevant Recordings
Review by: MH

This is a band that is a band no more having recently called it a day. Places To Hide come from Atlanta, Georgia and they have, or had, a sound that, although pretty punky, suggests they listen to a lot of 90s indie rock bands. Pavement, in particular, come to mind on listening to this on some of the slower tracks and the title track even puts the words “watery” and “domestic” together in its lyrics. There are boy and girl vocals and both have a kind of apathetic drawl to them although they can chuck in some energy every now and then when it’s needed too like on the melodic and more driven “A Place For Everything” where Kyle’s vocals are a little looser. It’s a shame this band is no more.
