Safety Net at Drkmttr, 2/27/2020

The power trio of Connor Cummins (vocals and guitar), Sean Flint (bass and vocals) and Cam Sarrett (drums) doesn’t have an album you can hold in your hands yet. But January’s livestream from The 5 Spot proved Safety Net’s got the tunage for one, maybe more. Songs sung by Cummins bring herky-jerky energy to the proceedings; in tandem with Flint’s moodier, more midtempo material, it makes for a dual-frontman dynamic reminiscent of Roger Miller and Clint Conley of Boston noise-pop pioneers Mission of Burma. Look out for a proper release from Safety Net before the year is up.
