3 out of 5
The British 4-piece got a fresh new start with their self titled album from 2014, what seemed to be a closure for the band, they instead had a major refill and are definitely safe in sound on their brand new record.
This is a band that sounds inspired and are willing to try new ways, like for example the poppy "Boomerang" and the Police-like "Money".
Although, I´m not too thrilled over the pop direction they have taken in "Boomerang", I prefer the traditional Lower Than Atlantis style in songs like "Dumb" and "A night to forget".
These two tracks are also the highlights on "Safe in sound", but in it´s entirety, it doesn´t reach the same level as "Lower Than Atlantis" from 2014.
I do dig Dan Lancaster´s edgy production.
