Safeashome formed during the summer months of 2005. Brought together by respectively english and french guitarists Jaike Stambach and Ludo Pin, the group started out by working on a series of demos which layed down the initial direction of the project. Influenced by the noise/pop interpollation of bands such as Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, these first sessions resulted in a series of highly detailed recordings. To avoid becoming trapped within the relative complexity of the studio works, the duo quickly sought out a drummer, and the arrival of Nicolas Dubois allowed Safeashome to perform their first series of gigs. Played live within the unconventional setup of two guitars and drums, the songs take on a harsher, grittier edge, deconstructed and stripped down to their basic shape.Self-recorded and produced, the single 198X/Light is Breaking Through is Safeashome's first official release, exclusively available on 12" vinyl. A combination of broken synths and layers of feedback, anxiety and nostalgia, the two tracks are a snapshot of the band's work so far, and a prologue for their first album, currently in the works. Fans of Sonic Youth, early Dinosaur Jr., and Isn't Anything My Bloody Valentine will find a lot to explore on this record, at maximum volumes, of course.
