ALBUM FEATURE: KATIE DRIVES - "SAFE AND SAD"
Berlin-based artist, Katie Drives, just delivered their powerful new EP, Safe and Sad. A 6-track ripper, this release is full of heartfelt and emotional elements that ultimately pull you into the enjoyable ride. The artist really shines by crafting such a unique and anthemic blend of sounds.
Powerful vocal flows are present in each track, and they're a big reason that the transitions between each song feel so fluid. This set of songs work together very well. The EP feels like a complete release, and not just a random pairing of tracks. By the time the Safe and Sad is over, all you want to do is hear more, and that's exactly what an EP is supposed to do.
The production work here is spot-on too. The instrumentals are heavy, the mix between the vocals and instrumental is perfect, and the added pieces of production pull everything together nice and tight. Blending elements of pop, alt-rock, pop-punk, and indie pop, Katie Drives has succeeded in delivering a dynamic release that will no doubt bring the artist a fresh wave of new fans.
You can stream the EP in its entirety below. We also added a couple of tracks to our Underground Punk playlist on Spotify. If you like what you hear, make sure you follow Katie Drives to stay on top of any future releases. Enjoy!
