We've all had that panicky feeling in our chest before when we feel so out of place, unsure where we belong or just can't seem to figure anything out. Black Beach enlivens those feelings and fears on single "No Place For Me" from Play Loud, Die Vol. II out 9/8. In just under two minutes, the trio ravages through what they dub "a typical existential crisis song," shouting out declarations of "there's no place for me," all the while brash percussion and menacing guitar adding an ominous weight to thoughts delivered on the afterlife. It's probably the most fun you'll have weighing your own mortality.
