Thin Lips kick off Divorce Year with “Nothing Weird”
A few weeks ago, Philly punk trio Thin Lips announced an exciting spring tour with hometown pals and equally solid rockers Hop Along. This week, the band (made up of former members of Dangerous Ponies) released “Nothing Weird,” the first single off their forthcoming album Divorce Year. Mixed up in crunchy guitar distortion, the track appears to be an anthem to an unwarranted farewell to someone. “I would comb out your hair, but I would just tangle you into the brush.” The allusion untangles the disappointments of watching someone walk out the door, highlighted by a upbeat bassline and shouting choruses. This is not a track to sleep on; listen to “Nothing Weird” via Stereogum and watch out for Divorce Year, which is due out May 5 through Seagreen Records. Catch Thin Lips opening for Hop Along on May 9 at Union Transfer; tickets and information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
