Performance Review on TBO.com
The acoustic, chilled-out, breezy version of Safe and Sound is a smooth and groovy party jam better suited to a surfside barbecue than a blaring club, but the group loves performing it both ways.
Biography: Capital Cities
Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, the frontmen behind the breakout alt-dance group Capital Cities, are a success story spawned by the Internet that has continued to blossom. The Los Angeles-based act took both the blogosphere and the shores of California by storm with their self-titled debut EP, out now on Capitol Records/Lazy Hooks. Their electronic-infused pop rock represents all that is right in modern music making, and makes the perfect soundscape for a day at the beach, or a night in the dark part of town, as long as you’re ready to dance. "Safe and Sound," the first single, is uplifting, sincere, catchy, and, like all their songs, full of heart.
