They didn't share the same skate park, dive bar, or record store, and were all coming from different points in their lives, but it all started with a handful of demo recordings being sent back and forth between Chicago and Durham,North Carolina. The ill-advised songs of hypochondria and surviving their 20's and 30's came to life when they solidified their lineup in 2014. Almost People began touring and fell in love with the youthful feeling that comes with getting lost on the highway and falling asleep on an old friend's floor.The optimistic would call it fate, the pessimistic would call it coincidence, but they just call it Almost People.
In May of 2015 theybegan writing their debut full length titled, 'Songs for Best Friends'. The tone of the record was to try to recreate the what goes through a persons head on a Sunday morning after a long weekend of unsettling events. Shifting from flashbacks of great times spent with close friends, to low and dark points spent alone, and somehow reaching an ultimate point of conclusion and finding hope that tomorrow will always be a better day. In January of 2016, 'Songs for Best Friends' was produced and recorded by Pete Steinkopf at Lakehouse and Little Eden, in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The album is scheduled to release with Anchorless Records in the fall of 2016. It's neither Country nor Western, but it does land somewhere between Superchunk, The Menzingers, and Modern Baseball.
