Capital Cities - Safe and SoundThe lead single from American indie rock duo Capital Cities, "Safe and Sound", already a big hit in the US and a chart-topper in Germany, looks set to replicate a similar degree of success in the UK. Its synthpop elements combined with an irresistible trumpet component in the chorus immediately grabs the listener's attention and the song's undeniable catchiness lends itself to the mercy of creative DJs everywhere to be remixed into a club anthem. Interestingly enough, if one pays close attention to the lyrics, he'll find that cleverly embedded in the verses is the parent album's title, 'In a Tidal Wave of Mystery', a subliminal message that should hopefully entice fans of the song to pick up the duo's debut album too.
