For Homesafe, their progression begins with a subtle nod to the past. While the band — comprised of vocalist/guitarist Ryan Rumchaks, vocalist/bassist Tyler Albertson, drummer Emanuel Duran and guitarist Joe Colesby — has been around for nearly five years, they reached their pinnacle with their 2018 release, One.
One served as Homesafe’s debut album for Pure Noise Records, and with that, the band dug deeper into their 90’s influences. The result is one that is calibrated and thought out, as it puts together high-octane guitar riffs with buoyant choruses and attitude — it’s timeless but without feeling regressive towards an alternative-rock sound that has long past. If you’re imagining a band forcing themselves to sound like Third Eye Blind or Foo Fighters, think again.
Where One was an introduction to these newly-embraced influences, less than 9 months later, Homesafe is already prepared to give fans another new taste of new music. With all of that, we are excited to be teaming up with the band to exclusively bring you that new taste, coming in the form of “Save Me.”
The song is a further venture down a new path for Homesafe. Trading in a fast-paced, upbeat sound for one that is more of a mid-tempo alternative-rock song, containing a chorus that might very well become your favorite chorus of the still young new year. Don’t let that fool you, though, as the second verse still manages to pack a punch with a simple, yet unfortunately relatable lyric of “‘Cause I’m working for this money I don’t get to keep / And I buy a fucking bed where I don’t get to sleep.”
On the song itself and what message they wanted to send, Homesafe tells Substream, “’Save Me’ is a song for those feeling helpless. It was written to remind not only ourselves, but anyone who needs to hear it, that we are not alone.”
