Product Description

The ten tracks on Conversationalist balance the light and the dark that is In-Flight Safety. You ve got your guitar hooks that will get stuck in your head and make you want to dance all night long juxtaposed by lyrical imagery which invites you into the mysterious. It can be raw and haunting. Yet, always uplifting with rich, thoughtful production that is anything but Indie. Mixed by Gus Van Go (The Stills, Hollerado) in Brooklyn, NY, Conversationalist is crafted with meticulous attention to detail. There s beauty in opposites, and this record is both pragmatic and ethereal. It s a love letter and a breakup in one album.


Tunes that we re particularly fond of include the albums opener, Animals with it s upbeat but melancholy take on the human condition. Then there s Destroy which is an epic, soaring ballad fit for the scene in the film where Molly Ringwald and Jake Ryan finally fall in love. The album as a whole is an incredibly cohesive effort in a day and age where singles are all the rage. It s refreshing to see a full body of work that is complete from start to finish. Mixed by Gus Van Go (The Stills, Hollerado) in Brooklyn, NY, Conversationalist is crafted with meticulous attention to detail. There s beauty in opposites and this record is both pragmatic and ethereal, it builds and burns, leaving you wanting more. It s a love letter and a breakup in one album. --Kick Kick Snare (Music Blog)

Soaring, with its shimmering guitars and sky-scraping chorus, finds the band flying in formation. --Q Magazine, London, UK - Top 5 songs of the week

It's been five years since of the release of In-Flight Safety's sophomore album, We Are An Empire, My Dear, an album that drew a large number of Coldplay comparisons and complaints about the band's sound being too ambitiously populist, without yet being popular enough. The two-piece have since scrapped a whole album's worth of material and built a new one around the thousands of conversations between band members John Mullane and Glen Nicholson. Touted as their most adventurous and honest album yet, one inspired by bands such as DIIV and Wild Nothing, you should probably mitigate your expectations before launching into Conversationalist. We're still talking about a band whose music has been showcased on television programs such as Degrassi TNG, Rookie Blue and Vampire Diaries, not exactly the most highbrow of platforms. And while this third studio album from the Nova Scotia duo does not deliver on its promise, it does manage to deliver some perfectly enjoyable tracks. 'Animals' is a great first single and album opener, as it accurately summarizes the whole full length: easy sing-along lyrics, simple and soaring guitar lines, and soothing '80s vocals. Conversationalist will do very little to dispel those early Coldplay comparisons, if anything, it'll reinforce them, along with comparisons to other popular indie rock bands such as Grizzly Bear. But if what they're looking for is widespread appeal, they could have done a lot worse than Conversationalist. --Exclaim! (Canada)
