Safia ~ Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds!

Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds

SAFIA.  An electronic-tinged music trio from Canberra,  the capital city of Australia.  They are better known by friends and family as Ben Woolner, Michael Bell and Harry Sayers.  But as SAFIA,  the talent is there to become a household name rather quickly in my humble opinion.  “Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds” has been floating around my playlists for the past few months and I have finally wised up in deciding to write about it.  Featuring a big piece of that great regional electronic sound made popular by recent Aussie superstars, like the mighty Flume and Cosmo’s Midnight, and throwing in a bit of a slowed-down Bondax vibe, “Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds” is a lot more than just a massively long name for a song.  It’s a track with a catchy sound that gets me moving from the very start. The big beats hit pretty hard without overpowering the vocals and the lyrics are deeper than they might first seem once you get past the simplicity of them.  I really like the vocal distortions in spots and being able to almost feel the words being pulled and stretched in different places they shouldn’t go.  Or so it seems.  But it all works together in the end.  It is the SAFIA sound so to speak and it works really well!  Coachella just might be closer than they think!

Lyrics:

Standing up on solid ground
The earth below my feet’s still falling down
The whispers & the creaks aren’t sounds
They’re voices in my head
That still surround (Saying)

All that I needed
I need your love
They said time isn’t waiting for you

All that I needed
I need your love
They said time isn’t waiting for you

Close my eyes & count to ten
The walls on either side are closing in
Can you hear my thoughts right now
Paranoia, ghost & other sounds (Saying)

All that I needed
I need your love
They said time isn’t waiting for you

All that I needed
I need your love
They said time isn’t waiting for you

I said that I won’t run
I said to hold my tongue
And do I think aloud
Wait can you hear me now

I said that I won’t run
I said to hold my tongue
And do I think aloud
Wait can you hear me now

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn't have it any other way!
