About Me

Tagline
3 Sides To Every Story
Me, Myself, and I
Safe 2 Say are a 4 piece rock band who formed in early 2007, the band played their fist gig on the 31st of March, to a home crowd. Encouraged by good reactions all round the band have continued to write progressively better songs while still keeping to there roots.

After recording their first demo on the 8th Of January 2008 they exploded onto the gigging scene playing all over Scotland in some of the best venues around from Aberdeen to Ayr! The demo has currently sold well to fans at gigs and has had good reviews from industry experts and others.

The band has recently recorded a follow up 3 track EP "3 Sides To Every Story" that we expect will do even better than the demo. It has currently received good reviews in fuse magazine and isthismusic.com

The main aim of the band is to let as many people hear them as possible, and to keep progressing as a group.

  • Angy G - Review of "3 Sides To Every Story"

    Oddly enough a quartet that I've seen live on a few occasions who've kind of impressed me yet left me feeling like I'm not yet seeing the real potential of the band. But this EP dispels all those misgivings and proves that, given a good performance over a cracking PA system, that this band has, indeed, got what it takes.

    The EP opens with “The Fall” a red hot and roaring slice of intense indie-punk, something that works so well because it manages to combine a massive sea of buzz-saw, scything riffing with guitars just going all over the place while the solid rhythmic foundations manage to propel it all along and at the same time be the glue that keeps it all together. Yet, for all the twisting and turning roar of the engines, there's a real direction, a real sense of compositional determination and a brain as well as a heart behind this surging monster of a song. The vocal are delivered with rage and angst, sung rather than shouted but sounding shouted, as the vocals splinter like rifle-fire on the occasions where the lead vocal diverts from its driving rage-fuelled purpose in life. The whole thing bursts, sizzles, erupts and lurches, but manages to keep you hooked without anything resembling a hook, musically or vocally. In a weird kind of compositional universe, it's stunning!

    They follow this up with “Little Miss Chevious” that starts where the previous one left off, then suddenly slows to just vocal and , drums and chiming guitar before roaring into gear and driving forward once more, this time vocals sparring with each other as the song twists from the heat and turns from the relief, once again splintering and raging, but so cohesive that you just remain completely captured by this hollering multi-layered track that's got more corners than a country road, more twists than a poker tournament and another solid performance on a well written and arranged slice of roaring indie-punk that you can't help but admire and enjoy.

    “Ashes For Lashes” opens with muffled sounds before the drums kick in, the duelling vocals take off, the guitars ring out and then the whole thing goes hell-for-leather into a slice of emo-punk that really hammers down and delivers the goods on a song that has so many layers and textures to it, you're gonna need several hearings just to take in all that it has to offer, as it rocks and rages to perfection, lurches and drives, twists and turns and has this incendiary sea of riffing and spiraling guitars that puts the icing on what is a solid and totally amazing cake. For this style of “thinking man's indie-punk” with as much atttitude as thought as performance, this is at the top of the tree – now let's see if we can get a live performance that reflects this!!

  • Andy G - Final Review

    Up next were Safe2Say who I missed in the semi-finals. Their opening track featured the drummer laying down this thunderous backbeat as the vocals soared out, duelling and splintering all over the show. A heavy burst of distant rhythm guitar and bass work were jumping all over the place while the drums proved to be the dominant feature as the vocals - and the song - takes off in raging fashion. Theor set was a set of "splintered" punk rock with more twsists and turns than a maze, hollered dual vocals, rock solid drumming and furious guitar work being paramount, on songs that rise like a rocket and plummet back to earth with alarming regularity, only to rise once more.Theirs is a sound that rages, roars and rocks, sometimes a bit like unfocused musical rifle-fire from a blindfolded batallion al aiming at the same target, but overall, while it possibly wasn't the best set they've ever played, it burned and sizzled for sure.

  • Andy G - Reveiw of our set at The Red Battle Semi Finals

    I only caught the last two numbers, but what did become apparent from these tracks was that you have a lead singer who's really letting go, clearly with a lot to get off his chest, as it were, as he sings but belts out the lyrics in a manner to which you really take notice. Over this, the band unleash a sea of splintered rhythms and a maze of riffs that stop, start, shudder, thunder and generally flare from the PA. The way the songs are arranged, allows the band to drop back only to erupt subsequently, although the only real flaw here is that when they do explode, somehow it's with a bang rather than a sonic boom and I think the drummer just needs to hammer down harder and the bass pound mightier for these dynamics to work to perfection. The singer's got a strong sense of impassioned anger to his vocals, givingt a vibrant performance somewhere between sung and shouted. All in all, a heady band who I'll catch somewhere down the line, for sure.
