Chicago rock quintet The Flips are known for writing personal songs about inner struggles. Their first album A Harm Deep But Shining tackled themes of faith, religion and identity through contemplative self-reflection and at times, outright anger and frustration. The band's sophomore album, Better Days, delves deeper into the personal and examines the experience of living with and overcoming mental illness. This time around the band has created a thick heavy guitar based sound to complement the distressed and despondent narrative.
