Why was “How Does It Feel?” chosen to be your next single?
We wanted our first release following our EP to be about something important to us. “How Does It Feel?” is about not feeling okay and feeling like you’re the only one in the entire world who feels that way. It’s about a desperation to feel like someone else understands what you’re going through, or has been through it in the past, so there’s hope that you will, too.
How would you describe the song in three words to new listeners?
Honest, driven, and emotional.
Will “How Does It Feel?” be part of a larger body of work, or do you plan on keeping this a stand alone single?
Well, without getting too ahead of ourselves… "How Does It Feel?" will almost definitely be part of something bigger. But for now, we don't want to give anything away!
How does the Atlanta music scene impact your music, if at all?
To be honest, the Atlanta scene hasn't had a ton of influence on the way our music sounds! We're definitely different from a lot of other local bands we know - which isn't a bad thing! However, we all cut our teeth in past bands playing at local venues like The Masquerade and The Drunken Unicorn, so we owe a lot of amazing shows and learning experiences to the Atlanta scene and we definitely wouldn't have all met one another without it!
What are some of the bigger picture goals for Safety Net?
Right now we're focused on getting our music heard by a wider audience, but in the future what we would really love more than anything is to be able to make music our full-time jobs.
Do you think “How Does It Feel” best represents where Safety Net is currently in 2019?
The new single definitely shows how we've grown as musicians and songwriters over the past year. It also holds true to our overarching mission to make music about things that we feel are important and write songs that are meaningful to us (and will hopefully be meaningful to other people, too!) - so overall… yes, we think it does!
