I Finally Like Capital Cities' "Safe And Sound" After All This Time

I first heard Los Angeles duo Captial Cities' song "Safe And Sound" about a million years ago when I visited my friend Alex in Austin. He played it for me and I said it sounded like New Order circa 1985.

But when I heard it on the radio for the first time this week, something clicked, and it didn't sound so derivative. It just sounded kind of joyous.

Here's the music video from, as I said, a million years ago (basically, 2011):

The band's five-track self-titled EP is available on iTunes.

    One of the few times I paid attention to my car radio recently. I heard it and got pissed that the display on my radio wasn't working to tell me the name, but for once the DJ actually spoke the name and artist.

    Ha, yeah - I had to Shazam it, and THEN was like, oh, yeah, I remember this.
