Alfred Hall Music
Safe & Sound (2016 Radio Mix)
As soon as the calendar flips over to the new year, we’re anxiously awaiting tracks that will encapsulate the masses throughout the year. They may be those legendary festival-worthy dance tracks that get our feet and hips itching for a shot at the dance floor. They may be those memorable indie tunes that give us inescapable lyrics that cross our lips for the duration of the year, and beyond. “Safe and Sound” falls somewhere in the middle, giving listeners a reason to kick back, or boogie, all while dreaming of sunny days, grassy fields, and the enveloping music that’s right around the bend.
Hailing from Norway, Alfred Hall is made up of Hans Tomas, an engineering undergrad, and Bjørn Tveit, a medical student. After deciding to form the band in the summer of ’09, they’ve since grabbed the attention of A&Rs, signed to Sony Norway, received a nomination for Scandanavia’s Best Music Video, and a nomination for Best Pop Album at the Norweigan Grammys. Now, they’re ready to take on the rest of the world, and this tune is going to lead them there.
“Safe & Sound” is simply radiant, lifting listeners up with a warming sense of wonderment. Set to the luscious backdrop of beachy drums, playful guitars, and whimsical whistling, it casually latches on, demanding you to bear a toothy grin, shake your hips, and sing along. Speaking of singing along, it won’t take you long to catch on. We’re a few listens through, and we’re already belting out each lyric, line by line.
Per usual, we’re going to highly recommend you like these guys on Facebook today. Aside from being in the know when their EP drops on March 26th, you’ll also be able to one-up your friends when they eventually catch onto them.
