“I wanted to write about that overwhelming feeling of starting a new relationship, falling for someone, especially when you catch yourself doing things you otherwise wouldn’t, because you feel invincible,” Garcia told AP about the song. “You recognize how bad other things around you are by comparison and try your best to leverage your optimism. Basically, if the house is burning, fuck it, at least we’re in this together, and that’s enough.”
Regarding the video, Garcia said, “It plays off that whole theme of the song. Being reckless for love’s sake because you feel like nothing could get in your way. We wanted to do something that wasn’t so obvious from the beginning but gradually plays out into this otherwise sketchy thing — the four of us breaking into someone’s house. Of course, having self-produced the video like just about everything else, we had to work to make it all manageable and we appreciate all the help that was given to us by friends over that five-day shoot.”
Locket previously premiered two new songs over at Billboard. Listen to “Sleepwalker” and “Other People,” and read the exclusive interview, here.

Having formed as Safe To Say several years ago, the band announced hiatus in the summer of 2017. A mix of failed relationships (both internally and externally) and mental health decline left the four-piece in a place that felt both uncomfortable and uncertain. Over the next year or so, singer/guitarist, Brad Garcia, alongside drummer, JJ Sorensen, guitarist Cory Bergeron, and original member/bassist, Travis Morrison, began rekindling their friendship and piecing together new songs. Despite being separated by distance —in some cases seven hours away from one another— the four rediscovered a passion for songwriting together and a flow that felt as natural as it had ever been. Having done all of this in private, the band had since written and recorded a new record. One that’s honest and straight to the point. But the final step in turning the page had yet to be made. After countless discussions, the band had decided to change their name; to start fresh: Locket. A way of holding the past close to their hearts, wearing their previous lives as Safe To Say proudly, only now willing to emerge as something new. Locket are four people that have grown up together, and finally find ourselves in a space we always wanted to be in.
