The Safes – “Hometown” Video

The Safes are Frankie, Patrick, and Michael O’Malley, three brothers from Chicago who make sunny, lo-fi garage-pop together. Their new album, fittingly entitled Tasty Waves, is arriving next month, and today they’re previewing it with lead single “Hometown.” A two-minute blast of good old fashioned rock’n’roll fun, the song comes with an eye-catching animated video directed by Patrick Oleksy. Inspired by Olly Moss’s classic film poster remakes, the nostalgic clip melds simple, kinetic line art with filmed neighborhood footage, and you can watch it unfold below.
