Places are a five-member band formed in Ostrava, Czech Republic in 2010. They have released 3 EPs, played countless shows across the country and went busking in the streets of Berlin.

In April 2016 they released their debut album DISTANT EDGES, which was produced by Tomas Neuwerth (Umakart, Kittchen, Kafka band, Nierika, LU etc.). Mastering was done by Steve Kitch from Devon, UK (Anathema, Opeth, The Pinneaple Thief).

On the album, which they worked on together with Tomas Neuwerth since 2014 in his Studio Animan in Kopřivnice (CZ), there are nine songs, which share the human heart, desire, pain, separation and confusion as the main themes. Lyrics are often inspired by true stories and feelings of people, the music in many cases emerges from long jamming together.

Places are not afraid of strong melodies but they never wanted to be likeable on the first listen.

"This group of five from Ostrava started in 2010 as a rock'n'roll band. They later did not refuse acoustic sets and busking but they gradually worked their way up to the indie-rock present that can't deny either post-rock or shoegaze influences." - United Islands

Track Name: Things Got Out of Control
Livin' here
Is not an easy thing
Another chance
It never comes
You wanna do it
You wish to do it
For the last time
Can you hear?
The bell chimes

While we're watching TV
Things got out of control
There's no way out
There's no success at all

Nobody knows
About winners
The way is cut
By the scissors
Can't you see
Us in the mirrors
Imagine us
As the haters

While we're watching TV
Things got out of control
There's no way out
There's no success at all
Track Name: Miracle Map
How can I learn how to hold my tongue?
The days are gone
And you're still holding your gun
I am the one
Who's gonna save you this time
Because your saviour has just left the town

And if you
And if I
Could draw a miracle map?

How many times have you tried to untie?
No time to take
Don't even try to hide
I'm not the one
Who blows away with the wind
Who do you think can bring the flavour of spring?


And if you
And if I
Could draw a miracle map?

Ain't it good
Ain't it fine
Count on a miracle map?
Track Name: Postcards from Berlin
You need to leave
The place where we were born
To find a new reality
Where you just can belong
And you moved so fast
And you left the past behind your back
Floated into the night with nothing left inside
Painted the daytime black

Lost in the crowd
Afraid of the thundercloud
Thrown into the night

I don't want you to go
But I should and you don't think that I cloud
We won't stay here anymore
No more golden rocks to throw
Because you moved so fast
And you left the past behind your back
Floated into the night with nothing left inside
And your postcard is lost

Lost in the crowd
Afraid of the thundercloud
Thrown into the night

Both of us know
This is the last time
You let me know
Track Name: Nowhere to Hide
Woke up at midnight
After a really crazy day
I can't contain my mind
And I need to get away

Some kind of dream
I can't discern at all
It makes me scream
I'm gonna write on the wall

I'm on the brink of insanity
Please drive me to your infinity
To the world full of simplicity
Where is no space for my vanity

That nightmare of mine
Was a fistion or a fact?
Am I blind in my mind
Where the dreams overlap?

There's a pleasure at sunrise
With no more delusion
Can you help me realize
What to say in conclusion?

I'm on the brink of insanity
Please drive me to your infinity
To the world full of simplicity
Where is no space for my vanity
Track Name: 4 AM
Stars
Stars above my head
Stars
On the edge of darkness

And I prayed
I prayed so hard the rain would come
To calm down
My face my thoughts - where did they come from?

From the edge
From the edge
Of darkness

See the light
Track Name: Insecure
Maybe it's not so real
Maybe it's not so sure
I think I cannot breathe
I think it might be true
Give me another faith
Another that I'd hate
Tell me the reason why
Is this in front of us?

So
You know

We've said so many threats
Then nothing, no regrets
(and we meant it)
Now I feel insecure
What were you fighting for?
It seems I gave it up
Instead of being tough
A bullet in the back
Would be better than that
Here we go

So
You know
Track Name: Locked
Day by boring day
I'm drawing the line
When you're feeling lonely
You're wasting your time
You're locked in your room
Maybe locked in your mind

It's hard to understand
What people want to live
It's hard to find a way
That people need to live
You're locked in your room
Maybe locked in your mind

I've got
I see
I feel
My soul in my alley
Of trees and people stay alone
They are falling down
We must be here / We must be strong
Living in this world / behind the door

I think I don't belong here
Maybe I don't belong here
I can see your face
But I can't see your smile
Track Name: Better Go
Try to look fast
Back to your past
Are you satisfied
With your own life?
A kind of illusion
Or just your confusion
Look inside your soul
Is it true, ain't it a hole?

And I can't do
Enough for you

Don't always wait
For another sunny day
Today: come and say
You came to risk and play
Probably you will fight
All the days all the nights
No more rest
Do want to catch the best

And I can't do
Enough for you

You better go
You better run
The path is short
Can't deny

You better go
You better run
Time is running out
You can't deny
Track Name: One Silent Minute
Flying
Like a swallow in the sky
Keep trying
Let everything out of my mind
Escaping
Into the garden with flowers
Breaking
Red bricks of high towers

I'll take you to my paradise
Could you let me do this twice?

Buying
One silent minute
Dreaming
To be like a small kid
Fading
Colours, in this way
Welcoming
The world full of dark gray
Again

I'll take you to my paradise
Could you let me do this twice?
I'll show you a different world
Would you board this boat?
