Speak Low If You Speak Love, the brainchild Ryan Scott Graham, are preparing to release their sophomore LP, Nearsighted, and today they're premiering their haunting, electro-laden new track "Safety Net."
"'Safety Net' is kind of like an Eddie Murphy movie, where I try to play every character involved and switch perspectives throughout," Ryan Scott Graham explains.
"The song is a snapshot of a small moment that I knew could make a significant mark on my life if I chose to pay attention to it. Musically we took a lot of chances too, with the electronic drum feel and the haunting piano, but I think it turned out really special. My friend Hannah Dob even came in and gave a really beautiful vocal performance on the bridge. Really proud of this one."
