SAFARI are five like minded souls who met at late night parties and bonded on the early morning walks home. With ideas that stretch far beyond the commuter towns of Hertfordshire that they grew up in, their music offers an intriguing mix of uplifting melodies, countered with a darker lyrical undercurrent. It’s a sound that crosses the wide audio landscapes inhabited by bands like Twin Shadow and Talk Talk, before turning on razor sharp hooks that nod towards the more wired and driving influence of post-punk.
Having already attracted support for their early DIY releases from The Fly, Record of the Day and Xfm the word is starting to spread - witnessed by the large crowd at last summer’s Latitude Festival, sold-out shows in Berlin and a growing online fan base. This summer they will be sharing a festival stage with the likes of The Horrors and The Vaccines!
