It’s been one long haul for Capital Cities and their Top 10 hit “Safe And Sound” — one that stretches back nearly three years, when the song was first independently released. Even at the point when we had the L.A.-based duo into our office this past spring, it wasn’t quite apparent yet whether or not “Safe And Sound,” which was was hovering just outside the Top 40 at the time, would climb into the upper reaches of the Billboard Hot 100.
But here we are all these months later, and the gents have a certified smash on their hands. Capital Cities are still out out there pounding the pavement, touring and doing TV promo, such as last night when the pair hit up Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Quite frankly, they sounded great and, good sports that they are, bounced around joyously like it was the the first — or at least the third or fourth or fifth — time they were performing their peppy dance-pop jam. Watch above.
