1. Safe and Sound: The ultimate summer anthem of 2013, and hopefully years to come. This is such an awesome feelgood indie dance pop song. It's perfect. The synths, the vocals, the corny but great lyrics, and who could forget those infectious trumpets during the chorus? This song was destined to be a hit. The entire song is amazing and catchy, but my favorite part is this little segment between 1:15 and 1:30 in the song. I will never ever get tired of this tune!
2. Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast: Nice upbeat synthpop song. The vocals are almost as infectious as "Safe and Sound". The chorus will make you sing along. The song has an 80s vibe to it. That seems to be happening a lot with recent music and I love it! The bridge around the halfway mark is simple but magical!
3. Kangaroo Court: I really like this song. It has this "Passion Pit" type thing going for it. The verses and chorus will get stuck in your head. There is a nice trumpet solo. I'm starting to love this duo and their soon to be iconic trumpet moments in their music.Read more ›
The bulk of "Mystery" bubbles with hooky synth-lines and danceable beats, while having a go at sunshine grooves. When a song about valuing your stereo more than your furniture winds into the disc ("I Sold My Bed But Not My Stereo" - what a great title), you get that Capital Cities are more into having fun than trying to say anything of import. Their one big experiment, "Farrah Fawcett Hair," playfully interjects samples from National Public Radio, a couple of verses via Andre 3000, and then drops a dubstep break in the middle. There's no denying the happy vibe of "Love Away" or "Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast" as well.
I guess this is the current vogue as, even as I think of early Depeche Mide, OMD or Naked Eyes while listening to "In A Tidal Wave of Mystery," I also can't help but be reminded of more recent offerings from Phoenix, Passion Pit or the debut from MGMT. With those kind of comparisons in mind, "In A Tidal Wave of Mystery" is hardly mysterious at all. It's an enjoyable debut CD, with hopes that Merchant and Simonian can keep the good vibrations coming on future efforts.
This release is a breath of fresh air. Absolutely high on my list. Get it and you will not be disappointed.
Ps if you have the chance to see them live you will not be disappointed they do some great covers.
