Safe As Houses is an alt-folk band from Kitchener-Waterloo recognized for their poetic lyrics and haunting five-part harmonies. Elliot Anton, Bensen Carter, and brothers Andrew and Thomas Laughton have been writing songs together since early 2011, with Lauren Taylor joining the band during the summer of 2014. Their first full length album, The Fall of the Sparrow, was released in December of 2014 at a sold out show in Waterloo. Their single We’ll Be Dancin’ placed in the top 24 nationally in the 2014 CBC Searchlight competition, and their song The Sun and the Storm was #13 on CBC Sonica’s most played tracks of 2015. Safe As Houses spent this past summer playing venues and festivals across Ontario, with the highlight being four performances at Summerfolk Music Festival. The band is currently in the studio working on new material due out this summer.
