Placeholder recently released a new song called “I Feel” via PropertyofZack. Taken from their forthcoming split with New York punks Such Gold, Placeholder highlights their own punk colors on this track. It has a nice groove and an awesome flow laid underneath the gritty vocals. Lyrics like “I don’t feel alright right now / but I’ll feel okay some day” are delivered with an angst and frustration that you can hear in the core of Brandon Gepfer’s voice. The guitar riffs are fresh and driving, adding a unique component to the mix of swift bass and drums. Placeholder continues to release well written and original grunge/punk/emo tracks that draw influence from bands like Sunny Day Real Estate and Nirvana, making them frontrunners of the Philly punk scene.
