Breeze Is A Heart Attack Waiting To Happen
There has been so much Safe Sounds stuff happening of late, and were stoked to tell you the year is just getting started... well kind of!
Toronto band Breeze dropped by the bank vault recently to perform two tracks from their upcoming record, 'Sour Grapes'.
Originally a solo project led by Toronto-based producer Josh Korody who has worked with the likes of Tess Parks, Dilly Dally, Fucked Up, Weaves, Dirty Nil, Beliefs, Breeze has evolved into a full band with the addition of Braeden Craig, James Kearns, Robyn Phillips and Julia Wittmann.
Heart Attack Waiting To Happen has already been released as a single from the Sour Grapes LP, which will arrive in its entirety later this year via Hand Drawn Dracula.
This session was recorded and filmed in downtown Toronto here at Safe Sounds inside a real disused bank vault.
We've got a load of interesting content up there on our YouTube Channel so check out our previous live sessions and releases from Toronto favourites. Oh and if you could Subscribe that'd be great... it's like a modern day blood pact but on the internet and not involving blood.
As always keep your eyes peeled for more!

Set Your Alarms - Nailbiter Modular Techno Set Live from the Safe Sounds Bank Vault!
Shucks, it's been a while since our last Safe Sounds bank vault session! Then boom, as if from nowhere, who should appear but techno pioneer, producer and all round Toronto heavy-hitter, Josh Korody.
Yes, Nailbiter will be performing a very special live modular techno set and it's gonna get you puuuuuuuumped. It'll premiere exclusively on the SS YouTube Channel at 7pm EST on Friday 11th March (which is midnight for those of you listening in London or across the UK).
We've coordinated the stream so y'all can get ready for your Friday night in style ~ that's right, we're broadcasting oven an hour of pure modular techno so you can decide what to wear, throw your makeup on, have a quick shower, or simply sit back and get pre-drinking (if that's your thing) before your big night out.
Because life is back, baby! Yes, this set is certain to get your Friday amped up and started in style.
At over an hour long, it'll be the longest live set that we've ever done, and potentially the longest that we will ever do. That is unless Paul McCartney is ever able to stop by to perform his live version of Hey Jude, in which case we'll make an exception ~ "Hey Judie Judie Judie Judie..." etc. In all seriousness though, this slams from start to finish.
Nailbiter has material out both on Josh Korody's own label, Nodding Heads, and with Toronto faves Hand Drawn Dracula. In addition to techno, you'll likely know Korody from his recent solo project Breeze, showcasing a different side to the producer where he collaborated with a whole host of peeps such as Cadence Weapon.
Korody also worked with World News on their up-coming EP, New Era, which arrives worldwide via Safe Sounds on Friday 18th March. World News went to his studio (Candle) to mix New Era, and Josh's killer ear was instrumental in giving the tracks some extra punch. We can't wait to share that one with you all too.
Anyway, I digress, head to our YouTube channel now to set a notification/alarm if you're the forgetful type and we'll see you at 7pm EST on Friday 11th March for Nailbiter live from the Safe Sounds bank vault.
