Philadelphia alternative punk newcomers Bystander may have tendencies of separation (thanks a lot, college), but that’s merely a speed bump on their road towards making one of the most interesting punk releases so far this year. Safe & Sound is a two-song feat that was created on dormitory floors and desks and is something that sounds like the lovechild between Hidden in Plain View and Have Mercy, complete with a sense of longing and underlying maturity. Mind Equals Blown is excited to premiere the brand new EP from Bystander right here before it hits major digital outlets tomorrow. Check out Safe & Sound below:
