The EP starts off with a bang with “Safe and Sound.” It is pretty much everything I could want from an electro-alternative fusion band. […]

So, for the super bowl I was looking for some music to pump me up. I didn’t really care particularly for either team (If Alex Smith wasn’t on the side line I would be rooting for the 49ers). I still wanted to get pumped up. I mean it’s the frickin’ Super Bowl. So I put […]
