High Safari :: "Hey Hombre!"

Alternating between angular, sunny guitars and chunkier power chord breaks, High Safari, a London duo, craft a bit of breezy pop on "Hey Hombre!". Maybe just south of twee, bits of the tropical seep from the pores of the arrangement. go-go percussion flourishes accented with lyrical exhortations like, "Won't you come with me?" and "I wish I was stuck in Thailand." It is escapism, plain and simple. The final act, a layered build out of the bridge, features the edict, "in the sunshine" set against something that sounds suspiciously like, "not coming back," cementing the emigre recommendation. About getting away, and certainly not thinking too hard about it, High Safari present the listener slices of the south for un-dilated winter days.
