People Like You are set to release their sophomore album entitled Verse on July 28 via Topshelf Records. Today they share the second single from the album entitled “Thumbnail” via Stereogum who says its “sweet yet melancholy in nature, and the band’s culmination of sounds work excellently together.”

“‘Thumbnail’ is about being in a long-distance relationship,” explains guitarist/vocalist Chris Lee-Rodriguez. “I used to say to my partner at the time that if you look far back enough you could measure the distance between each other with your thumbnail. No matter how hard it got, that  would always help me get through it.”​

The five-piece Boston-based band, People Like You, formed in 2014 from the short-lived emo/math punk band, I Kill Giants, which included guitarist/vocalist Chris Lee-Rodriguez and drummer Sander Bryce. After the release of their first record, This is what you learned. on Broken World Media, People Like You expanded to include longtime collaborator and trumpet player Matt Hull, as well as vocalist/pianist Michi Tassey, and Animal Flag’s Sai Boddupalli on bass.

After several years of making a name for themselves in the small DIY house show circuit in the Northeast, the indie jazz outfit will release their sophomore album, Verse on Topshelf Records. Incorporating improvisation, classical guitar, breakbeats, a punk ethos, literary references, and beautiful pop melodies, People Like You has developed a sound that they can truly call their own. Verse will be released on July 28th, 2017.
