Song Review: “Vanilla-Scented Laser Beams”

On April 24, 2018, Illinois natives Homesafe released its first single “Vanilla-Scented Laser Beams.” The song will be featured on the group’s debut full length album One via. Pure Noise Records.

The beginning of the music video gave me a nostalgic 80s/ ‘Stranger Things’ vibe with the fog and color scheme chosen by director Shifty Dimensions. The outfits the group wore during their performance reminded me of The Matrix with the dark attire and glasses worn. It was interesting near the end of the music video you see Homesafe playing for aliens.

The single gave glimpses to a new sound that is more on the rock and alternative side rather than an angsty, pop punk sound. The sound was similar to Such Gold with hints of Seaway. It wasn’t as raw with the rasp of the vocals and instrumentally the song wasn’t as high paced.  I’m looking forward to hearing more songs off of the upcoming album. If this single is an indication for the type of album One is, fans will be noticing a new era for Homesafe.

Here is the tracklist for One:

  1. Point Blank
  2. Run
  3. Say Something
  4. Sadistic Society
  5. Have It All
  6. Vanilla-Scented Laser Beams
  7. Suits and Ties
  8. I Don’t Know How
  9. Time Ain’t Free
  10. Stay Away
  11. Get It Right
  12. Sideways Sleeper
  13. fin

You can pre-order the album here. The album is set to release June 29. Homesafe announced a headline tour across the United States. Accompanying Homesafe will be Hot Mulligan, Heart Attack Man, and Jetty Bones.

In other news, Hawthorne Heights released Bad Frequencies, Bullet For My Valentine announced a tour via. Twitter, CHVRCHES released “Miracle,” and 5 Seconds of Summer released a live video for “Youngblood.”

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
