Thanks to Eric Davidson of CMJ for the video premiere of The SAFES 'Hopes Up, Guard Down"on Monday April 7 directed by our friend Mike Hindert.
"Chicagos modern rock musical rep rests primarily on Touch & Gos long post-rock legacy, and deservedly so. But since the late-70s, the Windy City has also been a consistent fount of solid power pop, from the big bang of Cheap Trick to awesome also-rans like Epicycle and the Vacant Lot, regional warhorses like the Elvis Brothers.
The Safes have continued along that line for a few years now. A trio of brothers (Frankie, Patrick and Michael OMalley), they credit their dad with having a home full of cool classic rock records, and they smelt loads of exhumed 60s garage and pop goodness into their bright sound. Their third full-length, Record Heatrecorded by Jim Diamond (White Stripes, The Sonics), Jason Ward (Arcade Fire) and Patrick OMalleywill be out April 29 on Wee Rock Records, and weve got a video premiere for the single, Hopes Up, Guard Down, right here. Lets just say the motorcycle bandit who zooms through this mini-movie is no chicken."
