Save Your Breath - There Used To Be A Place For Us

'This slots comfortably into the folder marked Perfectly Acceptable 2013 Pop-Punk.'

The problem with releasing a great debut full-length is – and always will be – topping the damn thing. With that in mind, it’s perhaps understandable that the sophomore effort from these Newport lads doesn’t quite hit the heady heights of 2011’s ‘Vices’, but it’s comforting that alongside their all-out pop-punk anthems of old are genuine attempts to diversify. Glimpses like heartfelt ballad ‘Skin And Bones’ and an uncharacteristically ambient, unsettling title track impress. All in all, while it doesn’t quite compete with the very best their genre has produced this year, ‘There Used To Be A Place For Us’ slots comfortably into the folder marked Perfectly Acceptable 2013 Pop-Punk.
