Safehaus is a band from the Glastonbury area in London that has been crafting and putting together a unique rock sound that stands out from the crowd. They’ve spent time touring the world and collaborating with other artists to spread a cool sound and message that audiences love. Lyft is a recently recorded and released EP that is a nice journey through the different sounds and vibes these guys can put together.
The first track of the EP “Real” starts us out with a cool and mellow vibe. The sound is accompanied by a spacey electric guitar in the background, and the vocalist’s style and voice complements the music perfectly. It’s obvious these guys work well together, and they have an obvious chemistry. The hook has a modern touch to it with a high-pitched octave that carries across the chorus. Overall this track has a pleasant sound, and you can tell these guys have worked on their individual crafts and really understand their style. There is an awesome transition and bridge in this first song, and it helps take us listeners through an emotional ride driven by the melody and music.
The second song called “Sad June” really showcases the singer’s range much more. This song also has a nice, mellow guitar riff that sings along with the vocalist and, again, shows great complement and chemistry between the musicians. The combination of the calm, acoustic rhythm guitar and the electric guitar that’s quieter and more in the background adds a really cool energy to the sound. These guys are great at changing up the pace and sounds throughout the song, which has a strong emotional impact.
The third track of the EP has a different vibe to it. The introduction is a bit dragged out, and features a high-pitched grungy guitar sound to it. The bass line in this song is excellent. It is clean and heavy, and rattles your bones a bit. The vocals also change up a bit compared to the other tracks, and they take more of a backseat compared to the other tracks. All-in-all this song called “Red Sky” is different than the others but showcases a variety of styles the band is capable of producing.
The last track “Leave it All” is a great wrap-up and has an excellent calm, rock ballad feel to it. The vocalist takes center stage and is accompanied by a chill but rhythmic drum beat that marches us along the song. This album has cool, poetic lyrics throughout. This album showcases a great lyrical ability, and the vocalist is able to convey an emotional message in a smooth and enjoyable way that makes this album a fun and pleasant listen.
