Debut album from Irish four-piece. Brazen pop that flirts with everything from post-rock to new-wave to electro that will appeal to fans of Mates Of State, Fiery Furnaces, Q And Not U, Pixies, The Anniversary and Daniel Johnston.
Formed in September 2006, Hooray For Humans’ style blends rough guitars with alluring synths and polished electronics which saw them quickly branded as 'Ones To Watch’ by Hot Press. Their debut album Safekeeping successfully and infectiously finds a blissful counterbalance between emotive lyrics mixed with boy/girl shouty pop, sensitive indietronica, big choruses and fun times. It is the sound of a band enjoying themselves, wanting to make you dance yet it is anything but throwaway in its nature. After winning over the Irish music scene, Smalltown America is delighted to re-issue this record in conjunction with the Limerick-based collective Out On A Limb.

"Infectious tunes that manage to bring a warm-hearted glow to electro pop's predominantly cold and lifeless stock." - Limerick Independent
"If their wonderful long-player Safekeeping is not amongst your most cherished possessions you can crawl back under your rock" - Hot Press
"It’ll be fascinating to see where Hooray for Humans go from here. Safekeeping is a debut full of sparkle and promise – cause for celebration indeed." - AU Magazine
