Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
GoodDreams - SAFETY CLUB
Brisbane experimental hip-hop collective SAFETY CLUB have been on my list for DSD for a little while and with the word that they are currently working on an EP, I thought it would be a good time to share with you my favourite of their early singles: "GoodDreams"
Check it out below:
I really dig "GoodDreams"; it has an almost...Moby like feel behind the vocals, giving the whole track something of a hazy, nostalgic/not quite real feel (perfect, considering the song's title) and the bars are well constructed and have just the right amount of laid back for a chill, hip hop track for your (if you're American) long weekend today.
This song is literally why I picked a hammock picture to feature this week, because this is a track that I am going to be kicking onto some lazy summer playlists for sure....and I haven't even mentioned the sudden appearance of the 1980's style saxophone...solo? Feature?
Regardless, suddenly (as with all good dreams) there is a saxophone, and it's dope.
Be sure to check out some of their earlier singles as well (the equally chill "Highlite" being a favourite of mine), and keep an eye out for the forthcoming EP.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
See you again tomorrow (with probably another completely different sounding song, so I can hate myself come Playlist time...)
