Philly band Nothing is doing something about the criminal justice system
The title of the album is slang for fighting, a term Palermo learned during his two years in prison, and the rest of the album touches on difficult periods in Palermo’s life including his incarceration and his dad’s death. The themes are heavier and more personal than previous Nothing efforts. It sounds dreamier, too, a reference to how he felt after he was diagnosed with a brain injury following a 2015 assault. The record’s second track “Blue Line Baby,” a song about the opioid crisis in Kensington, is a reference to the Market-Frankford El and mentions Philadelphia street names Cambria and Lehigh, streets Palermo grew up on.
