The Coast is Clear


In-Flight Safety
The Coast is Clear
(Dead Daisy)
Take U2 and Coldplay’s melodic sensibility, Doves’ uplifting drive, the atmosphere of Stars and you have The Coast is Clear, the long-awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed Vacation Land EP and a record that should catapult In-Flight Safety past its east coast stomping grounds and into national consciousness. One thing is clear: the sound of the nicest band based in Halifax has matured over the course of the two years of cross-country trekking it took to write, record and produce its first full-length. The arrangements are superb, the playing is professional and the choruses are radio friendly, especially the title track, “Surround” and “Letting Go.” It’s not a perfect record, but as far as debuts go, it’s one of the strongest Halifax has seen in awhile.
