A Festive Message from Safe Sounds
Well, it's been another year of ups and downs across the world, but we've loved having the opportunity to share musical moments with y'all along the way. Art, music and community are the fire in our hearts, and we love being able to beam these rays through the cracks as we all swim on this earth.
We hope that you're able to spend the festive season with your family and friends as planned, or if not, that you're able to take some time to relax and reflect on the positives of 2021.
A quick recap on our year, which started and ended with World News music videos — Descenending in January and A Message for the Kids in December, not to mention the wonderful show they squeezed in with the incredible Theo Vandenhoff, Paulo Sinski Microband and Animal Party.
RUM DO's double-a arrived in a collision of sound and colour in February, but it wasn't going to end there...
2021 was a year where we welcomed four new artists/groups to the collective, starting with Theo's debut EP, Heartache Is An Empty Room. Then Idious Carrie blew us away with the double-a side O before Your Grandad shook the rafters with the Juice Opinion / Fake News split.
Thank you to all of these wonderful and talented folks, and for everyone who has supported and enjoyed our releases along the way. This is very much a passion project for us, and all the great feedback we've received really does warm the cockles. Thanks also to everyone that submitted music to Safe Sounds this past year — we listen to everything that we are sent and have enjoyed your sounds and love letters.
Merry Fuckin' Christmas everyone! This is us signing off for 2021, but don't you worry, we'll have new music on the way in the New Year.

A Message for the Kids from World News
The music video for World News' A Message for the Kids is premiering now on our YouTube Channel!
The track is taken from the upcoming EP, New Era, which will be released via Safe Sounds in 2022. We can reveal that the EP was mixed/produced by Toronto musician, producer and engineer, Josh Korody (Nailbiter, Breeze). This marks the first sounds we've heard from this collaboration.
The video was filmed and edited by the creative team of Danny Alexander and Kalina Nedelcheva. It showcases the amazing props and art of Hannah J. Busse and stars a rising child actor known only as Zander.
You can catch World News live this Saturday 11th Dec at The Baby G in what will be their only show of 2021 - be warned that tickets are selling fast so to guarantee entry we highly recommend purchasing an advance ticket. You can do so here.
