With a tight, noise-driven sound that hinges on strong bass lines and angular rhythms, From Safety to Where appeared in 2000 as a throwback to the like-minded punk of the early 80's. Bringing to mind artists such as Mission to Burma and Gang of Four, the band's hard-to-find 7" EP was a melodic exercise in sonic experimentalism that garnered many raves. Their second release, 2002's Irreversible Trend, moved the South Carolina trio into a more gothic area. Utilizing keyboards and a doomy sense of atmosphere, the band cut back some of its harsher traits and introduced a few hooks into their thick wall of sound.
