UNXIGNED is independently run by a team of freelance writers and music curators helping underrated artists get the attention they deserve and guilt-tripping fans into checking out the irresistible. Help us keep the lights on with your riches, you lucky mortals or, better yet, give it to the most needy.

Describing their sound as “synthy R&B electronica,” Melbourne, Australia’s promising duo The Safety Word’s lush musical vibe is easily any indie pop fan’s newest guilty pleasure.

Their dreamy, mystical mix of chillwave and trip-hop embodies all their genre influences from reverb-driven post-rock to downtempo. The project is mainly the combined efforts of John Rousvanis and Simon Quinn—with Craigus McVegas often playing with them during live shows. Their self-titled debut is out everywhere music is sold.
