It Looks Sad. originally began playing shows in early 2012 under the name It Looks Sad, That's Why I Said It's You. After a few line-up shifts the band emerged in late 2013 under the shortened name, It Looks Sad. In the Winter of 2013 the band recorded a handful of shimmering, sharp guitar pop / post-punk songs that echo the influence of bands like Surfer Blood and Beach Fossils. Along with the shortened moniker, It Looks Sad. professes a leaner, more straight-forward approach with their new material. The band's live show is also something to behold as their songs are given a bit more power and room to breathe. Hometown label, Tiny Engines, will release the band's proper Self-Titled debut in the Summer of 2014.

Places To Hide Joins Tiny Engines / Song Premiere on Stereogum / New 7" Out Fall 2014 / Summer Tour

• Wild N Soft 7" out Fall 2014 on Tiny Engines 
• Almost Nothing LP name-your-price download on Bandcamp
• Band confirmed for The Fest
• RIYL: Tigers Jaw, Joyce Manor, Desaparecidos, Swearin'


Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Atlanta, GA's Places To Hide to the roster. The label will be releasing the band's new Wild N Soft 7" this Fall with a LP scheduled for 2015. 7" Pre-orders coming in August.

You can hear the first single from Wild N Soft now. "Nowhere Bound" is streaming exclusively on Stereogum.

The band's 2013 Almost Nothing LP is available for name-your-price download on Bandcamp as well.

Throwing out the "band is maturing" phrase can sometimes be a death knell for what you loved about them in the first place. Barely two years into their formation, Atlanta indie/punk band Places To Hide are assuredly growing up on Wild N Soft. Yet, the band has kept the reckless, lovable spirit of past releases while becoming a bit more nuanced in their approach. Yes, Places To Hide are still loud and addictive, but the youthful abandon that poured out of the band's earlier releases is tempered somewhat on Wild N Soft. The vulnerable, heart-on-sleeve spirit of the band remains though and the songs still have that same irresistible allure and charm. Wild N Soft is perhaps the perfect description for Places To Hide right now. Still wild, but softer, dare we say more mature. Places To Hide might still be finding their way but they are determined to make the journey a fun one regardless.

Places To Hide is heading out on tour later this week. Dates listed below. Band is also confirmed for The Fest in Gainesville later this year.
