British alt rock/pop band Scars on 45 is set to release their sophomore album Safety In Numbers on Oct. 7, 2014 featuring the first single “Crazy For You.”
Scars on 45 released their self-titled debut in 2012, which landed at #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. Already a favorite among film and TV music supervisors, the band’s gorgeous melodies, driving instrumentation and boy/girl harmonies caught the attention of VH1 who chose them as a coveted You Oughta Know Artist. They made their national TV debut on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and received media support from the likes of USA Today, People, Entertainment Weekly, Paste, Spin, Billboard and more.
Safety in Numbers is a collection of 11 impassioned rock songs, reflecting years of hard work. As they wrote, the musicians looked back over the three years they’d spent on the road and what those experiences had meant for them as humans. “Golden,” the album’s anthemic opening number, and “This Is Not Your Love Song,” a surging, hook-laden rocker represent the band’s entry points into the collection, both setting the tone for what Safety In Numbers eventually became. “Crazy For You,” the disc’s first single, is cathartic and lovely, its propulsive chorus offering a plaintive sense of longing. The album glides through various emotions, revealing the sheer joy of experiencing your dream to the discontent that comes with leaving home and relationships for so many years. “It’s about being the happiest you’ve ever been and then, at points, the most miserable you’ve ever been,” Danny notes. “But for me, a lot of the songs on the album are about either really joyful experiences or the self-awareness of actually being happy. This album is a lot about realizing who you are. The songs, really, explain the last four years of our lives.”
Scars on 45 is Danny Bemrose (vocals/guitar), Aimee Driver (vocals), Dave “Nova” Novakowski (piano/keyboard), and Chris Durling (drums).
