It's kind of busy here at the moment so this will be short and sweet.

You can hear the impending Hello Saferide single, "Anna" at It's A Trap.

It all kicks off all upbeat and jaunty. Stellar pop, “she would have been a sweetheart but with punk rock manners” but then, “lake” is rhymed with “heart breaks” and the ensuing guitar squall is akin to Mick Ronson weighing in from the spirit world. Out the other end of that there’s a fleeting nuance of a “what’s so funny ‘bout peace, love and understanding” type harmonic. Just a sliver. The first “short story” from the album and a certified smash that should be hanging in any and every hit parade on earth. Do they still have those?

That ought to keep you in kicks for now...
