Safteysuit burst out of Nashville, Tennessee, in 2008 with their Universal Records debut, LIFE LEFT TO GO. The band may count Coldplay, U2, Matchbox 20, and other acts among its influences, but Safetysuit’s sound will undoubtedly stir the hearts of anyone who loves sweeping, guitar-driven mainstream rock that’s long on melody. The surging grandeur of “Someone Like You,” with its high-flown chorus, is an album highlight, as is “Something I Said,” a mid-tempo rocker that underscores the group’s ability to balance expressive emotion and rock muscle. Passionate and powerful, LIFE LEFT TO GO announces the arrival of a new pop-rock voice.
