Brothers Frankie, Patrick, and Michael O’Malley are THE SAFES. Growing up, these sons of Irish immigrants were surrounded by music. Their father, a working musician, record collector and all around music lover filled the house with live sounds, great records (Little Richard, Magic Sam, & Hank Williams…) and an array of musical instruments. This environment ultimately led to the development of this very special band.
THE SAFES have that unique chemistry that comes when talented siblings form a band (think Kinks, AC/DC, Everly Brothers, Beach Boys). This chemistry fuels The SAFES’ records as well as their live shows. Touring coast-to-coast since 2003, THE SAFES have established large, loyal fanbases across the country on the strength of their live show which is a sweaty explosion of energy and melody.
THE SAFES have also shared the stage with such notable acts as Andrew Bird, The Smoking Popes, members of Wilco and The Raconteurs to name a few as well as having worked with some top record producers like Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, The Shins), Keith Cleversley (Flaming Lips), Jim Diamond (White Stripes), and Jason Ward (Arcade Fire, Kid Congo Powers).
The quality of their releases have also brought THE SAFES national recognition.”Century of Saturdays”, “Double Single”, “Sight of all Light”, “Well, Well, Well” and “Boogie Woogie Rumble” and “Family Jewels” have received favorable press in such notable publications as Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Paste Magazine.com, Boston Globe, Kansas City Star, Popmatters, San Francisco Chronicle, and the Sun Times.
-David Fricke, Rolling Stone
“Fueled by a strong family chemistry, The Safes make smart, melodic music that would fit comfortably with Elephant Six bands like Olivia Tremor Control, Neutral Milk Hotel and Elf Power.”
“Old-fashioned, fuzzed-out power pop”
“The SAFES makes sugary pop-rock that seems like it would fit right in on mainstream radio.”
-TimeOut New York
“Wild and crazy, family style”
