image

No matter what your musical tastes entail, there are select songs that stand out as undeniably catchy–that is the kind that tempt you to unapologetically whip out Shazam in the midst of a social gathering. Bay Ledges’ “Safe” is one of those songs. Five months after the breakthrough original was released, the Venice brother-sister duo have unveiled the official music video for “Safe.”

The colorful, dynamic “Safe” visual corresponds befittingly with the track’s romantically playful and lyrically relatable nature. In the video, we watch from a close third person perspective as Zach and Georgia Hurd take diligent steps towards creating what will soon become their most successful single. “Safe” has accumulated over over 3 millions plays,  became a Spotify Viral 50 standout, and was named “Today’s Top Tune” by KCRW. As Zach shared,

“We recorded ‘Safe’ in my apartment with a mic and laptop…there wasn’t any sort of proper studio set up so we’d just use my bedroom or kitchen. Ellis Bahl, the video director, had the idea of showing a more surreal version of the writing/recording/performing process and pairing it with glitchy visuals that speak to what’s happening sonically in the song. We think it’s a fun and weird take on a song that took quite a bit longer than 3 minutes to make.”

The singalong-worthy track will be featured in the Bay Ledges’ upcoming Fountain Tropical EP–due Aug. 18. Celebrate the EP release with Zach and Georgia at Bootleg Theater Los Angeles on Aug. 15–tickets available here.
