[MP3] Capital Cities – “Safe and Sound”

in a tidal wave of mystery you’ll still be standing next to me

♫ Capital Cities – Safe and Sound

Ok yeah, just another upbeat synth pop jam that sounds li… WAIT, those horns! Hot diggity. This jam gets on some sort of magic carpet and gets some serious altitude, soaring and swooping with all kinds of glittery goodness. LA’s Capital Cities take roots in San Francisco, Paris, and Armenia and blend them into sonic gold that makes me need to rush out and get their self-titled EP like right now.

  4. […] “Safe and Sound” is one of the best songs of the year and so I naturally tracked down this bearded LA duo’s debut EP to see what else they had cooking. If you’ve hit play below then you know they are cooking some sweetness: Indie pop grooves that are as polished as they are infectious yet somehow don’t feel superficial. And that is a tough task. “Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast” is going to be my pick for next favorite track but it’s not easy denying the handclap funk of “Center Stage” or the amen sentiments of “I Sold My Bed But not My Stereo.” Jeez, thanks for the tough decisions, Capital Cities!
