Following their 2013 mini-album Put Yourself Back Together, Chicago emo/pop punk outfit Real Friends released a proper debut full-length in 2014 with the verbosely titled Maybe This Place Is the Same and We're Just Changing. The band worked with producer/mixer Sean O'Keefe to craft a richer, more thoughtful vision of their energetic and youthful pop punk. This upped production can be heard in the lush acoustic textures of "Sixteen" as well as on faster, more dynamic tracks like "Loose Ends."
