Track Of The Day :: Safe To Swim - Pieces
If you were lucky you may have caught this local Brighton quartet Safe To Swim last weekend at The Great Escape. If you didn't, now is possibly a good point to catch up.
Formed in 2014, they released their debut single 'Forget Life.Repeat.' in February 2015, followed by their first EP '20 Years', which just came out in April - and contains our Track Of The Day, 'Pieces'.
Produced by Mike Lord at Brighton Electric Studios, they describe their sound as 'heavy pop': a combination of sleazy grunge fuzz and indie rock with upbeat pop hooks and melodies. The three-minute 'Pieces' slow builds on James Filippides' grungey vocal and synth accompaniment, before blasting full out on a surge of shredding guitars and a fuzz-filled final onslaught.
