"The Safety Word are electronic euphoria mixed with a catchy chill-step vibe." - Isabelle Rizo (Divide and Conquer)
The Safety Word are an electronic duo from Melbourne Australia their works inspired by dream pop, chill wave and trip-hop sensibilities. The band consists of core song writing team John Rousvanis on (vocals/electric guitar) and Simon Quinn (laptop/keys) who either play as a compact duo unit or expand the band’s sound with an assortment of guest musicians for unique performances. Their sound can be described as down tempo electronica with a twist of trip-hop and future R & B. Thrown into the blender are soulful vocals, abstract guitar, deep bass and ambient synth soundscapes.
"Such a sound could only have ever been born out of the Post Rock, New Romantic genre, but the Safety Word use all of the haunting harmonics as the perfect ingredient in their cocktail of downtempo synth and R&B." Amelia Vandergast (A & R Factory) "
