CD Review: Safe, So Simple – “Too Close To Closure”


Remember Easycore? Remember duel vocal blitzes? Well Safe, So Simple does and on their new EP Too Close To Closure, they're bringing it back - bringing it all back with one press of the way back button. Too Close To Closure is a fun-as-hell sonic wall of ferocious guitar frenzies, frenetic melodies and bipolar vocals (“Within Reach” brings back all the feels of For Those Who Have Heart-era A Day To Remember, the duel vocal attack of “Teeth Like Sharks” is a reminder of just how killer multiple vocalists can be, pop punk permeates and gang vocals abound on the memorable (and awesomely titled) “Do Or Do Not, There Is No Try”). And really any album that samples iconic film Tommy Boy can't be all bad (as the band brilliantly does on the succinctly pissed and tightly weaved myriad of metalcore euphoria that is “Welp, Better Luck Next Year.”). Too Close To Closure is short and sweet; a record that leaves an indelible mark on listeners long after its completion.
