New Music Series: No. 1 - Safe at Second

July 12, 2017

When I first heard a teaser of the new Safe at Second song on one of Mike Biggs' Instagram Stories, I searched high and low on iTunes and Google trying to find this Pop-Punk band that demanded my attention with only a twenty-second clip. Little did I know it would actually turn out to be Mike's own solo project, which I discovered a few weeks later via a friendly Facebook invite asking if I wanted to "Like" the new Page. I didn't need any more convincing than that. Accept.

 

Safe at Second, accompanied by a trendy and stylish logo, looks and feels more like an accomplished band than one that is only releasing its first song this week. With a polished sound and a clear direction, the first Single, Where I Always Want to Be, is everything you'd expect from Mike if you've ever had the chance to discuss his taste in music. 

 

Unlike the Pop-Punk sound that's establishing itself on today's Warped Tour scene, Where I Always Want to Be offers throwback flair to the late 90's with the nostalgia of Blink 182's Enema of the State shining through the opening riff and again with the chorus melody as Mike belts out the highly contagious "on and on I will sing this song, till my lungs give out, till I'm dead and gone..." which will stick with you for hours even after the first play-through. Subtle verses offer a nice dynamic and setup to a grittier pre-chorus which is more reminiscent of the genre in its current form and offers a great juxtaposition to the old-school vibes we're feeling in the chorus.

 

Where I Always Want to Be is a tremendous first offering from Safe at Second and if it provides any indication as to what we can expect next from them, we'd better stay involved.

Lyrics

 

So here we are, another fork in the road. We've come this far to have our story untold. And if you're feeling a change, we can still flip the page and bring back those days, bring back those days. The nights will go on, we'll see through the day. If things do go wrong you know that I'll stay. On and on I will sing this song, till my lungs give out, till I'm dead and gone. Will you take a chance with me and live out fantasy? Escape away, escape away with me. It's late at night, another day out to rest. But now's the time to get some things off my chest. And I just wanted to say, I fall more every day and I love this place, I love this place. The nights will go on, we'll see through the day. If things do go wrong you know that I'll stay. The nights will go on, we'll see through the day. If things do go wrong you know that I'll stay. On and on I will sing this song, till my lungs give out, till I'm dead and gone. Will you take a chance with me and live out fantasy? Escape away, escape away with me. Eye to eye, on a bed we lie. When the time stands still I know the feelings right. If I'm living in a dream, will you never wake me, because this is where, where I always want to be.
