The Safes possess that
unique chemistry that only exists when a talented group of siblings form
a band (ala The Kinks, The Breeders, The Stooges, Redd Kross, Right Said
Fred). Call em garage-kissed power pop ( San Francisco
Chronicle), atomic pop ( Rolling Stone), or simply wild
and crazy ( Chicago Tribune), The Safes have collected plenty of
accolades for however youd like to sum up their expert-level snappy
songwriting and sharp showmanship. Now, with the bands latest album
Record Heat out, the brothers OMalley ( Patrick, Frankie, and Michael)
are bringing the music of The Safes to both their loyal fans and a whole
new set of ears. The Safes are aware
that an album titled Record Heat might be promising a lot, but with over
a decade of experience in the studio and on the stage, the brothers OMalley
know what they are doing. The bands smart, melodic music
( NPR) is rooted in 60s-era inspirations such as The Kinks and The
Who artists who knew how to deliver big on record and on stage.
Contemporary comparisons such as Spoon, Guided by Voices, Thee Oh Sees
and The Apples In Stereo make a whole lot of sense, too.
When it has come to getting that sound on tape, the brothers
have recorded themselves at their own StudiO'Malley
and have also worked with some top record producers like Brian Deck (Modest
Mouse, The Shins, Iron & Wine), Keith Cleversley in Chicago at The
Playground (Flaming Lips), Jim Diamond in Detroit at Ghetto Recorders
(White Stripes), Jason Ward in Benton Harbor at Key Club Recording &
Prole Arts in Chicago (Arcade Fire, Kid Congo Powers), and David Suycott
(Spies Who Surf, Machines
of Loving Grace) in Chicago at IDIGMusic.
power-pop band-- centered around a trio of multi-instrumentalist brothers--
craft well-executed songs.
Well, Well' marks a move away from The SAFES' grittier beginnings and
toward the more melodic pop sensibility
