People have been saying that Halifax's In-Flight Safety may be Canada's answer to Coldplay. And by the second track of this five-song EP, I'm inclined to agree. While nobody in the band appears to be dating a winsome starlet (they are Canadian, after all), Vacation Land has the same kind of piano backed numbers and rock-out electric guitar tracks that you'll find on X&Y. This is music I can get into. In-Flight Safety have already played with Stars and local darlings Broken Social Scene and are definitely poised for bigger things.
In-Flight Safety play Harbourfront's East Coast Rhythms festival on Friday (August 19).
